1. 4TN are not an instruction for practice, they are the answer at the end of the exercises book. You can’t practice the answer, you can only be guided by it. You can only be aware of the answer. The answer naturally follows from the exercise solution. The value of the answer is that you are confident in the correctness of exercise solution and that’s all. That is, without a solution (practice of Buddhist yoga), the answer itself (4TN) has no practical value.Astus wrote: ↑Tue Aug 27, 2019 2:15 pmThat is a denial of the possibility of understanding the teachings and following the instructions, hence a rejection of the Three Jewels.
What is the measurement of abilities?2. I had in mind the average man with average abilities.
2. As a rule, the measure is a reconciliation of the yogic experience you have already achieved with a description of the reference experience (for example, 4TN, 10 bhumis, etc.). If you are very lucky (which is very rare), then a qualified master can inventory your abilities.
