Reply To: Bahiya Sutta and Creation of Sensuality in mind.


“The perspective that I had about bahiya suttā was that Bahiya understood that adding san to  sensory experience is what causes dukkhā.”

It is more than that. 

  • One adds “san” to the sensory experience because of the wrong view of “me” and “mine.” That is sakkaya ditthi.
  • Of course, the perception (sanna) of “me” and “mine” reduces gradually and goes away entirely only at the Arahant stage.
