-“y not: Now I am totally lost. What SANNA are you talking about?
Is this regarding my post of January 7, 2020 at 4:50 pm?
Please quote the whole paragraph that I wrote (that is not clear) and re-phrase the question as if it is a new question. Do not refer to any back and forth above. Let us start afresh. Take time and formulate the question.”
No, no..we are on different wavelenghts. I had a question. Nothing to do with questioning or querying anything you wrote. I had already said that I require no answer to the could/can choice of word. (“This is just something I asked myself ‘en passant’, on reading ‘could lead’, it is not related to my main point. No answer in necessary.”)
“So let me try again. My question is:
“Let us take the case of a Sakadagami who does sankhara or regular series of sankhara:
– 1. which are punnahisankhara, leading to a deva existence.
– 2. with Nibbana as the Goal, foregoing AT THAT TIME, all relishing of a deva world.
– 3. with both at once: mindful of that deva existence, with THAT prominent as the immediate destination ,BUT, at the same time, mindful that that too will come to an end because Nibbana must follow. That is, the ANICCA NATURE IS SEEN. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SANNA HERE? ..for THAT SANNA ‘takes both in’ at once.
I hope it is clear now.
Thank you for persevering with me.
