Reply To: Hadaya vatthu in asanna realm


“You said, their body shields the hadaya vatthu. How dense must their body be then? If it would be a few rupa only, would that be enough to shield?”

We cannot think about “shielding” in terms of our perceptions.
– The human body “shields” the gandhabba (hadaya vatthu plus pasada rupa) inside.
– The human body is not concrete or steel.
– We have no idea how kamma works. Only a Buddha would know.
