Yes, thanks Lal.
The Buddha was not satisfied with those arupa jhana’s. Why? Why were his teachers satisfied and the Buddha not? From the sutta’s i understand that the Buddha realised that also those arupa jhana are conditioned and come to an end. He was not, like all the rest, searching for something with that nature, even when it was very peaceful and sublime like the jhana’s.
The amazing thing is, i find, that the Buddha must have had a belief or intuition that there must be something unconditioned to find.
