booker seems to have made a good point. The more you grasp your illusory self, the more you'll eventually suffer. Mariusz objection is not totally without merit, but it seems to me that booker never boxed his suggestion. It's a fact that right now if you start letting go of the attachment to an illusory self, practicing and gaining insight, thus letting go a little more, doing it again and again and so on until the 7th bhumi (or forgetting the gradual approach altogether, but that's not the point), suffering is bound to disappear. It doesn't simply vanish once you get through the 7th bhumi. I don't see the connection to the zombification of the practitioner in this process, Mariusz. Care to explain a little?

hahaha, of course. :lol: That I guessed. I just would like you to explain a little how do you see that happening. Do you think that by loosening our grasp over a self that has no existence before the 7th bhumi we zombify ourselves? It can't be something that simple of have in mind, so I'm trying to understand what are you saying. :smile:

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

I didn't make the connection either.
Thanks for explaining Mariusz. :thumbsup:
