the five aggregates

Postby robb82 » Thu Aug 05, 2010 12:57 pm

I'm having trouble understanding the concept of the five aggregates completely. I mean i think i have the general idea, and i've been focusing on it during seated meditation, but i'm not fully understanding it. i'm also not quite sure where feelings, or emotions, would fit in. would they be perception, mental formation?

Try . The five aggregates are taught in lecture #3, but it's recommended that you listen to these lectures in their proper order.

“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

A Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion of writing a computer virus that destroys and replaces files on a victim PC with manga images of squid, octopuses and sea urchins. Masato Nakatsuji, 27, of Izumisano, Osaka Prefecture, was quoted as telling police: "I wanted to see how much my computer programming skills had improved since the last time I was arrested."
