Thought this would be useful in a Meditation Topic Group, but we don’t have one yet.
"If you perceive space,
The fixed ideas of center and boundary dissolve.
Likewise, if mind perceives mind,
All mental activities will cease, you will remain in a state of non-thought,
And you will realize the supreme bodhi-citta."
I wish I would have known about Buddha‘s teachings of vedanas much earlier. As a much younger person, I often tried to discuss with others about the „mental taste“ of experiences (as I called it). Like the „taste“ of perceiving a flower, a cloud, whatever, the subtle friction in the mind space directly when perceiving an object. Good to know now that there is even a Pali word for it.
Talk about pith instructions!
