Content / Description

Washing dogs: a comparison. Our love for our own “smell”. The only thing that shines in the whole Universe for the wise: Nibbana. Kilesas are tricky. Kilesas are what we call “us”. “I” is the one who gets us in trouble. The three principles of the Universe: Anicca, Anatta and Dukkha. Reflective questions about them. Constant changes of feelings (Vedana), memories (Sañña), thoughts (Sankhara), Viññana (consciousness). What in the Five Khandhas is not changing? Reflections. Why and when Dukkha and restlessness comes in. An example of the Lord Buddha about the “I”: Disassembling the body. The Four Elements. The Five Khandas: Rupa, Vedana, Sanna, Sankhara and Viññana. The game of the “self”: Newborn child with a five balls toy simile.
