On this topic, it appears a poster had the view that feelings & perceptions in themselves can be kamma (action, deeds).
Is this true?
When the suttas categorize three types of kamma, are feelings & perceptions in themselves included within the 3rd type of kamma, namely, manasā kammaṃ?
Per MN 61, can feeling & perception in themselves lead to harming oneself?It is intention that I call deeds.
Cetanāhaṃ, bhikkhave, kammaṃ vadāmi.
For after making a choice one acts
Cetayitvā kammaṃ karoti—
by way of body, speech, and mind.
kāyena vācāya manasā.
What is "manasā kammaṃ"? Is "manasā kammaṃ" acts of "thought"? Or is "manasā kammaṃ" also mere "feeling & perception"?‘Does this act of mind that I want to do lead to hurting myself, hurting others, or hurting both?’ …
‘yannu kho ahaṃ idaṃ manasā kammaṃ kattukāmo idaṃ me manokammaṃ attabyābādhāyapi saṃvatteyya, parabyābādhāyapi saṃvatteyya, ubhayabyābādhāyapi saṃvatteyya—
Please discuss. Thank you
