Content / Description

Some considerations about memory. The heart that is experienced in Dhamma. Comments about: tanha, wanting, greed, hate, Avijja and conceit. Language is limited to the experience that we normally make in the world. Similes are still the best way to describe experiences beyond this realm, but cannot be applied fully. Examples of similes of Avijja. Understanding of the mind is not the understanding of the heart. Cleaning the attic of the house: a simile of cleaning the path of practice. The teaching of Lord Buddha is a pointer to the truth and not the truth itself. Importance of the own experience. The observer and the object observed. Samadhi: when the observer and the object become one. Mindfulness and self-consciousness: the difference.
