“There is NOTHING in this world that can be maintained to our satisfaction in the long run (anicca); thus, after much struggle we only end up with suffering (dukkha); thus, all these struggles are in vain and one is helpless (anatta)”
Let it be, let it go…

imo, yes it will generate bad karma due to ignorance. Karma is nature law for all being, which is beyond one religion, belief, faith, etc.

“Punnābhi sankhāra, apunnābhi sankhāra, ānenjābhi sankhāra ayan vuccathi avijjā paccayā sankhāra“.
When deeds are done to live in this world, one has to do sankhāra. They become abhisankhāra when those are done with greed, hate, and/or ignorance
my 2 cents,
if the sankhara, is not contain greed, hate & ignorance intention then it can not become abhisankhara.
Ie. end arahat life but without greed, hate & ignorance intention, then it can not become anantariya akusala kamma.
However I think it is almost impossible 100% free from greed, hate & ignorance.
Lal, Akvan & Firewns,
Thanks for the explanation that increase my understanding.
Yes, it is similar to “pig butcher” Chunda Sukara story, even though we knew it but can’t do anything.
Just, my curious in realm 6th and above, are there any teachings other than Buddha Dhamma ?
That’s make sense.
Thanks for this very clear explanation.
I suddenly feel sad and sorry for the animals, and the people who believe this ritual.
But I have no control on it (anatta), so best thing I can do is just let it be, let it go and wishing someday, somehow they will realize about Dhamma.
I’m sorry for my bad english, if trigger wrong sanna.
Anicca sanna is the key…
Lal, yes it make sense. I grasp it now.
C. Saket : But when the lifetime of a suddhatthaka ends, its energy runs out and it gets completely destroyed i.e, it vanishes completely.
If vanish means unborn, unchange, no end anymore, so it enter nibbana?
annicca could be is the “conservation energy law” : another ultimate beauty truth of Buddha Dhamma reveal long long before human science….
Lal : “The point is that any sankata is destroyed after some time.”
In my understanding only mind that free from greed, hate & ignorance can escape from annicca ie. Nibbana, everything else must bound to annicca law (rebirth / change form, annicca could be is the “conservation energy law” in modern science) If suddhaasthaka destroy and vanish, could it be same as escape from annicca?
Lal: “2. All matter belong to sankata category, and thus there is a finite lifetime.”
According to “The law of conservation of energy, a fundamental concept of physics, states that the total amount of energy remains constant in an isolated system. It implies that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but can be change from one form to another.”
What happen to suddhasthaka/matter after pass it’s finite lifetime ?
Yes, that’s suddhastaka composition.
Let’s hear Lal explanation to shed the light.
Thanks for your explanation, let’s go down to the most basic ie :
“A suddhāshtaka, being a sankata, is created by the mind. This may be surprising to many of you, but as we progress, I will provide evidence that it is true. This is why the Buddha said, “manō pubbangamā dhammā…”, i.e., “everything has mind as the precursor…”.
What create mind ? what happen to suddhashtaka once it’s life end ?
Once we get answer, then each and everything else how tiny or huge is just “matter” with different appearance, just as simple as that.
