Reply To: Tamotama Sutta (Four Kinds of People)


Thank you, Gad. It is an excellent sutta to discuss.

  • Yes. Unfortunately, only relatively few strive (or even know how) to go from “darkness to light.”
  • Nature’s magic show (“distorted sanna“) fools people. They think material things have kama guna, i.e., material wealth can bring long-lasting happiness: “Sotapanna Stage via Understanding Perception (Saññā).”
  • But it works the way. People do akusala kamma to gain and enjoy material things (for a short time) and pay dearly later.
