Reply To: Tilakhanna & Fear


Just one quick follow-up on this, and it has to do with dreams (the bold texts are mine), since this is something I experience a lot.

“Fear is two kinds:
1. Fear of losing things in this life, fear of getting sick, losing loved ones, of ghosts, of bad dreams, etc etc. What we can call “mundane fears”.

“A good indication is when one does not see terrible dreams anymore, for example, and have a general sense of calmness.”

Are dreams mano viññāna?

We’ve been having good discussion on viññāna in relation to the current “origin of life” series, and I’m wondering if dreams are considered viññāna.

Thank you,
