Yes. It is a bit of a complex subject.

  • I realized it may be better to use pictures rather than text to get the ideas across.
  • The “distorted  saññā” is “built-in” to our mental AND physical bodies by kammic energy (via Paticca Samuppada.) That is why it is hard to figure out that it is a “mirage” or a “trick,” as the Buddha emphasized in the “Pheṇapiṇḍūpa Sutta (SN 22.95).”
  • Understanding how the gandhabba and the physical body are interconnected also helps.
  • To all: Please don’t hesitate to ask questions. Understanding this will go a long way in comprehending the “previously unknown teachings” of the Buddha and eliminating future suffering.
