Reply To: Examples of doing Anapana in sankappa, vaca, and kammanta.


I know we should Anapana thoughts that are the stronger versions of greed like lobha/abhijja. But what about weaker versions of greed like assada/kama raga.

It is starting at the Anagami stage one has eliminated kama raga. Sotapanna and Sakadagami still have kama raga.

1) So should we also suppress thoughts that involve assada/kama raga(thoughts about food, music, beautiful sceneries, an attractive person)?

2) Do we need to suppress and Anapana assada/kama raga to get to Sotapanna stage?
