Reply To: Goenka´s Vipassana – Part 2


I have read the two parts of Jorg’s document that Jorg especially requested input on.

1. The “The Mind Processes” section on p. 11 is good. You seem to have a good grasp of the concepts. I am happy to see that level of understanding.

2. The “A deeper analysis of “sankharas” and Buddha Dhamma” on p. 82 can be improved. 

  • You seem to be more focused on sankhata than sankhara there. Of course, sankhata arise due to sankhara, and they need to be discussed. But the critical part to discuss HOW sankhata arise due to (abhi)sankhara.
  • The recent post “Saṅkhāra – An Introduction” and the links referred to there could be helpful.
