Is it useful to seek for, or believe in a ultimate enlightenment a kind of ultimate being?
Just that! :-)

It is useful to practice and reduce or (even better) eliminate papanca ("monkey mind").


Kind regards

Live in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.

Is anyone advocating a completely blank mind? If not, what does eliminating papanca lead to? If the answer is insight, how does eliminating papanca leads to insight?

Is there a point where we can see the different between papanca and insight? In a relative or ultimate way?
