Reply To: What exactly is meant by sensual pleasures?


I hope I don’t annoy you, lal.

But, can you give one word answer to whether my understanding in first post in this thread is correct or no.


To your reply above:

Okay so more accurate word for kama loka is obviously kama Raga. This are the kind of subtlety that I need to devlope for more accurate insight. I missed the word “sensual” it obviously means through senses.

So we can say that assāda is more broad term. So, assāda encompasses jhanic pleasure as well.

Also, Rupavacara Brahmas and other higher brahmas would still have lot of pleasure which would come from their existence in higher state itself, right?

Sensual pleasures would also stem from sommansa vedana right?
