- Dear Herman,
I'm going to get a reputation, I swear...
H: "Dhamma study is the mind studying itself, no props required."
Dhamma study (pariyatti) is learning the Dhamma (read teachings).
"Mind studying itself" is, loosely, practise or patipatti; and the
penetrating of the Dhamma (pativedha) is the end.
If by "mind" you mean "citta," I half understand your point. I don't
follow the apparent self-reflexiveness: citta is the reality which
experiences; objects are those which citta experiences. Does citta
experience citta? I don't think so. Corrections welcome.
With loving kindness,
- Dear Sarah,
S: "Sounds right to me. Taking the elements for something, for atta is
miccha ditthi. As you later put it: 'If in this [one understands] the
object to be non-void....'"
Scott: Thank you, I appreciate the clarification. Later.
