Iddhis ranked?

Post by Will » Fri Sep 30, 2011 12:04 am

I will study ch. 12 of Path of Purification if need be, but I was wondering if someone knew of any scale of importance or danger for them. Are there lower or higher iddhis, such that one would focus on the higher or more useful first and avoid the lower, coarser or more dangerous iddhis?

Have to ponder this Kevatta Sutta; thanks Stig. :bow:
