Reply To: Post on An Apparent “Self” Is Involved in Kamma Generation

I prefer not to go that way with this.

With sukkha vedana one is pleased, welcomes and embraces it. There is icca involved. With dukkha vedana, one is annoyed, at best, rejects it, and does one’s best to obliterate it. There is no icca here. The sequence that leads to Release is ANICCA, from which (the recognition of) dukkha follows (Tilakkhana), and from dukkha, the Four Noble Truths.

With dukkha vedana, I just apply anapanna and satipatthana on the spot, not contemplating the long-term (would-be) consequences. I do NOT always succeed, and when I do it is most often after quite some time.
