Reply To: Perceived pleasure ∝ Wanting ∝ mental vexation/stress ∝ (1/waiting time)


“Arahants don’t have vexation, that is why they don’t feel pleasure.”


To be more precise, we can say that arahants don’t feel mental pleasure (somanassa vedana). They still feel sukkha vedana (and also dukha vedana, but NO domanassa vedana as you pointed out).

A question about something totally unrelated: if we get a chance to take care of an arahant, to help make his/her physical life as comfortable as possible, then it is of tremendous merits for us, correct?
