“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

I suggest anyone interested in advanced meditation practices read Ingram's book and make their own judgement. I think of myself of pretty tradtional and find the hard core dhama people follow the Mahasi Sayadaw meditation practices closely. Ignore most of what has been written in this thread.

I think Daniel was wrong to call what he says he attained "arahat". That term is not what he attained in my current opinion. He made a mistake in diagnosis. He got only half way there in my opinion. It can happen without a teacher there to put you right. He did though, in my current opinion, attain to a high stage of awakening. Just not the final stage of arahat. Lots of yogis are finding out he was probably wrong. There is still more to do, and I think because he had no-one pushing him to explore more at the time, he just mis-diagnosed. Same with Kenneth Folk. What Daniel's book talks about got him and many others to that stage. It is all valid and if you are able to leave aside his misdiagnosis, all the rest is useful. But each to his or her own.

This was not a lecture, tilt. I consider you an advanced yogi. An opinionated one, but who isn't? ;)

Lots of love,
