Mahasi Sayadaw - Progress of Insight - Questions

Postby zazang » Sat Jun 19, 2010 1:07 pm

Hi there

Having read this http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... gress.html , I have some doubts :-

1. It says that the consciousness falls into Nibbana , where there are no formations. He becomes an Arahant.
After sometime , obviously the Arahant comes back to the sensual plane of existance. After this , can that Arahant again
and again still the formations whenever he wants or is it just a one time event in someone's lifespan ? Does the Arahant only see arising-passing of formations after that ?

2. After which knowledge attainments in this progress of Insight , does a person reach the 3 pre-Arahant stages ( Sotapanna , Sagdagamini and Anagamini) ?

3. What exactly is the cause and effect that a yogi notices so that he starts believing that Paticccasamupada ( Dependent Origination ) is true ?

4. From what I make out , a yogi is supposed to note mental constructs and bodily sensations. What if both arise simutaneously ? Should he note any one of them randomly ?

Thank you ,

With Metta
