Hello Mike, all,

Ultimately, I consider suttas to be the authority. And AN6.63 does say that "Contact is the cause by which kamma comes into play".

Sometimes I strongly disagree with what modern authors claim that the Buddha has said.

With metta,

Alex

So wrong.
Why meditate, then, in your world view?
