Content / Description

The identification with the body. In Samadhi kilesas are at rest, but in Nibbana the Five Khandas are gone. Deep pain experience and Samadhi. Forcing or persuading. Fear and pain, going through them, understanding them and investigating them: the only way. Understanding takes place in the heart. Wisdom and Sati: a simile. The heart: the only thing that can let go. A tunnel through the mountain. Attachment to family and friends. Watching us, not the others. Kilesa: what is not peaceful, quiet, calm. Understanding the whole “train”. Rolling back. Looking at the process. Using words. Experience has nothing to do with words and concepts. Anicca: considerations. Figures in the clouds. Building concepts is: just wandering on. Techniques are just techniques. Getting stuck in the practice. Sati: our engine in the training.
