when she's telling stories fom the suttas to show how this makes sense, then it does make sense. when its all rupa kalapas and different kinds of bhavangas and javana it gets confusing...

at first when i was reading about the kalapas i was all like, wtf? is this real? does this make sense in a scientific way? i used to work at for a genetics and biology journal, i should know if this is real or not. then i was reminded that i have no idea whats going on at a sub atomic level....

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Hello jcsuperstar,

Did you manage to get a copy of the book to Ven. Dhammanando? And having read it yourself, what is your opinion of it?

Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss
