N: This need not be any problem. In reality there are no persons, no
deities, only citta, cetasika and ruupa. What can I learn from the
Jaatakas and commentary? They teach me how to develop what is
wholesome, sobhana cetasikas, in daily life. That is what really
matters. When reading we can always consider: what is real now and
what can I learn here?
Some people doubt about the truthfulness of the commentaries, but
then, let us read them and see what they tell us. That is more
convincing than historical arguments. Any teaching that helps me to
understand reality now I find reliable, because I can check it myself.
