Thanks Lal, things are clear now.
Thanks for the post Lal, I read it again and I think things are clear now.
But the link you posted actually doesn’t lead to the post (it leads to this forum thread)
Please fix it so other people can open the post :)
Lal, I was being curious where you got this from (nirodha samapatti = parinibbana)
In this post Nirōdha Samāpatti, Phala Samāpatti, Jhāna, and Jhāna Samāpatti you stated:
Nirōdha samāpatti is succinctly described in a verse in the Mahāvedalla Sutta (MN 43), where the difference between a dead body and the body of one in nirōdha samāpatti is described
So my question to you is: Do you think Nirodha samapatti is just like parinibbana because of this sutta: Mahāvedalla Sutta (MN 43), and do you think that is so because nirodha samapatti is being closely related to a dead body (no sankhara), or did you get this from another source?
Can somebody link me the source sutta where it says that nirodha samapatti is just like parinibbana?
Okay, I now I see that not all arahants can attain nirodha samapatti, but does that mean that anagamis are unable to attain nirodha samapatti?
Thanks Lal, another question popped up in my mind.
Is it true that only arahants can enter nirodha samapatti?
Does Pañcavokārabhava mean five khandhas? (I see you wrote four but I am assuming this is a mistake because I think panca means five)
I have read a lot of your posts and I have learned a lot of dhamma but it’s just that my questions are about people’s experiences as your explanation of dhamma concepts is precise and doesn’t need further explaining, that’s why I don’t ask questions about dhamma concepts.
And now for my next question:
How do you know you are a tihetuka?
Okay, thanks, I see now that they have the same meaning. But what do they actually mean? (I read it as ill-will but I am not so sure what it means)
No, last time I was asking you about the increase of niramisa sukha, now I am asking you if your niramisa sukha is permanent :)
Yes I understand that, but did you personally feel an increase of niramisa sukha or it just stayed at the same level?
Do you feel the same level of niramisa sukha or it increased over time?
Thanks you :)
