I agree. Trying to address concepts in other schools will only lead to confusion. I have mentioned this several times. Please keep that mind when you post.
We have enough difficulties with dealing with “bad or useless translations” in Theravada itself.
That is why I asked Siebe to clarify what he meant by “formations” (I think he meant sankhara).
– It is better to use key Pali words like sankhara instead of using “formations” which does not convey any meaning. It is better to try to learn the meanings of key Pali words and then use those Pali words.
