Greetings friends,

:buddha1:

Does anyone have any thoughts in relation to instances of the arising of the Dhamma-eye presented above?

Are there any common themes to these instances of mental cultivation in the Sutta Pitaka that we are able to discern? Anything that might be useful for us in our attempts to progress in the Dhamma?

Does anyone have any more examples from the Sutta Pitaka they wish to share, of the arising of the Dhamma-eye?

Metta,
Retro. :)

Greetings,

The arise of dhamma-eye happens when a person have direct knowledge about one or more caracteristics of existence.

Thats the great point, direct knowledge or abstract knowledge? Both should walk side by side...
