137523Re: Seeing - where is it?
- Aug 18, 2014Hallo Rob,
R: when you say that the passada rupa is a name for the 5 physical sense
organs, what is meant in that sentence by the "organs"?
A: if there were no passada rupa, which is conditioned by kamma, then there
would be no hearing for an example. There may well be an ear but no
hearing. Same for the other senses.
R: does 'organ' stand in for ear-base, or is the organ/passada rupa a rupa
that denotes the 'ear in some way, the location of the ear-base?
A: pardon me, but personally, I think you are tying yourself in knots or
maybe you're tying me in knots :)) I see it as for the purpose of
understanding present realities, e.g. hearing (citta) arises at ear-base
(passada rupa) to experience sound (arammana)
Now it appears, on the conceptual level, that sound is heard by the ear,
but I have been told that when sound is actually experienced as a reality
there is no concept of location.
patience, courage and good cheer,
