Content / Description

“Who am I?” Question oneself. “Am I always like that?” Check the sanna and sankhara- stay apart. Sanna & sankhara are not me, not I, not mine, not myself. Teach the citta, anicca, dukkha and anatta. Nothing is constant, all phenomena are anicca including the changing moments of “self” or “I”. Always ask oneself “Am I always like this?” to teach the citta that thoughts, feelings, memories change at quickly, so do not take ownership of sanna sankhara.
