- Jul 6, 2013Dear Pali group
I am most interested to learn the question that this reply from Nina refers
to, I unfortunately missed it.
Would you please be so kind as to send me a link to it.
I usually stay in the background but this answer from Nina looks important,
too important to miss.

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.
