      Dear Group

      Here is today's passage from Survey of Paramattha Dhammas by Sujin Boriharnwanaket:

      "The five khandas are objects of clinging, and this is shown in different similes. In the commentary to the Visudhimagga,the Paramattha Manjuusa (See Vis. XIV, 221, footnote 83) it is said that ruupakkhanda is like a dish because it bears the food which will bring happiness. Vedanaakkhandha is like the food in the dish. Sannakkhannda is like the curry sauce poured over the food that enhances its flavour; because, owing to the perception of beauty it hides the nature of the food that is feeling. Sannkaarakkhanda is like the server of the food being a cause of feeling. Vinnakkhandha is like the eater because it is helped by feeling." (p.220)
