Reply To: Determining if I have reached the Sōtapannaa stage


Sybe07: Sakkaya ditthi is a (wrong) VIEW.

When one gets rid of sakkaya ditthi, one just gets rid of that wrong view. That does not mean one will lose any of the five aggregates.

One will then realize that IT IS UNFRUITFUL to take any of those as “MINE.”
– But one may still have the PERCEPTION (sanna) that those are “mine.” That perception reduces at each stage of magga phala and will COMPLETELY go away only at the Arahant stage.

P.S. The recent post, “Mental Body Versus the Physical Body” discusses why it is unfruitful to take one’s body to be “mine.”
