"gregkavarnos"]You are reifying the clinging to the five skhanda as an existent false self and then you are reifying the absence of clinging to the five skhanda as an existent True Self. All you are doing is bouncing between aversion to the false and attachment to the true. Saraha (not me) is saying: just use what you have right now, where you are right now, because right now is samsara and Nirvana.
yes the false self is and clings to the 5 Skhandas and it exists dependent on ignorance,End false Self through No Self and unobscure True Self.
no there is no attachment to the true,remember NO SELF,at the end of the path of NO SELF there will be NO SELF to be attached to the true.
and like wise I can say all you are doing is having aversion for the True Self while being attached to the False Self.
yeaaa... and (you) "right now" is that which is born and dies and is dependently originated from ignorance which you also think applies to Nirvana so stay in Samsara its okay its only the other side of the coin
If there is no "i" in Nirvana (which is what everybod has been saying all along) then how can it be defined as a self?
are we on loop again? again the true Self is not the Worldly self of "i'/personality.
True Self in the Nirvana sutra is the pristen wisdom/the true/real/ulitimate reality/self governing/inherently arisen/unchanging/uncreate/permenant/eternal/not conditioned not dependently arisen and not produced from Ignorance
(I think i have already posted the sutra and the qoute that says this)
What is ignorance?
one of the 3 poisons and that which is not the Buddha,also ignorance is everything that is dependently arisen
