Undermining the kilesas. The tree of greed and the tree of hate, investigating the body: the only way to cut them down. Three kinds of investigation. Traveling throughout the universe of the body. Breaking down the body, its functions, and understanding its nature. Opening the inner eyes. Investigating properly. The knowledge that arises in our heart. Similes of insight: cutting down the tree - making a tunnel. Stage of anagami. Investigation of the nama khandas. Mind resting in samadhi and mindfulness: a necessity in order to start with a proper investigation. How to investigate thoughts and breaking them down. Not knowing and true knowingness.
