Thanks Nina for your kind explanation. There are many pannatti.
1. vijjaamaana pannatti (cakkhu)
2. avijjaamaana pannatti (son)
3. avijjaamaanena avijjaamaana pannatti (my leg)
4. avijjaamaanena vijjaamaana pannatti (Buddha's cakkhu)
5. vijjaamaanena avijjaamaana pannatti (cakkhu dvaara)
6. vijjaamaanena vijjaamaana pannatti ( cakkhu vi~n~naa.na)
Nibbaana is wrapped with naama-ruupa. Naama-ruupa is wrapped with pannatti.
First the outermost layer has to be torn away so that naama and ruupa can be clearly seen. When naama-ruupa is seen that layer is penetrated with vipassanaa(pancingika magga). As soon as the margin is passed nibbaana is seen.
To reach seeing naama and ruupa a good teacher is required. That teacher must be an ariyaa at least sotapanna.

:-) I appreciate what I desperately hope is your humor here, and if so, is very funny.
I will get back to you with the usual sutta quotes as soon as I can. :-)
Very very funny, Jon. ; - /

J: You may have forgotten in the confusion over the new format that you have already come back with a quote from the Satipatthana Sutta. My reply to your message can be found here:
