Reply To: Four Conditions for Attaining Sōtapanna Magga/Phala


This is a new bit of information for me, and also very intriguing and intricate.

The reason I gave my own take was because in my experience – although I’ve read a lot of Dhamma material and listened to a many desansas from different monks as well as Lal’s own talks – I’ve always felt that my strongest revelations and feelings of niramisa sukha came from things that I read, rather than the talks that I listened to.

That’s not to say that I prefer one method of learning over the other, but that’s just how it seemed to work out for me personally.
