Reply To: post on Vipallāsa (Diṭṭhi, Saññā, Citta) Affect Saṅkhāra


Those dictionary terms are not far off.

  • subha:  auspicious is better. That means it can mostly bring benefits. 
  • sukha : the opposite of dukha or suffering.

Tilakkhana (anicca, dukkha, anatta) are characteristics of nature. One could say asubha could/should be included there too. Of course, the word Tilakkhana is not in the Tipitaka; at least, I have not seen it in the Tipitaka. 

  • However, many suttas discuss only anicca, dukkha, anatta, and mutual relationships among them.

Asubha is always mentioned (together with anicca, dukkha, and anatta) under vipallasa (mental confusion.)
