Conversation took place two years ago before Anurag realized anatta.

    Anurag Jain
    "I Am", if you mean it to be Self can never be an object of any perception so it's strange how you see it as 'one of the ten thousand things'. Self I that which witnesses the ten thousand things' including your thought which says I Am is one of the ten thousand things.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    Anurag Jain only after anatta it is realised to be another condition
    Even consciousness without object, pure subjectivity is no longer seen as pure subjectivity
    But at the I AM level it is indeed seen as pure subject that cannot be made an object of observation.
    Pure I, not even am


  • Anurag Jain
    Soh Wei Yu the one who is talking about Self as subject is object to the Self.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    In I, there is only I. No subject or object.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    After anatta that too is another pure nondual condition. No different from in hearing just sound. So there is no reifying pure subjectivity.


  • Anurag Jain
    Soh Wei Yu. Who is the one who talks about it?


  • Soh Wei Yu
    self enquiry is only for leading to self realization
    Further realization requires other kinds of inquiry


  • Anurag Jain
    All realizations of every kind are object to Self. There are infinite realizations possible but all are objects to Self.

    Anatta and Pure Presence
    Someone told me about having been through insights of no self and then progressing to a realisation of the ground of being.
    I replied:
    Hi ____
    Thanks for the sharing.
    This is the I AM realization. Had that realisation after contemplating Before birth, who am I? For two years. It’s an important realization. Many people had insights into certain aspects of no self, impersonality, and “dry non dual experience” without doubtless realization of Presence. Therefore I AM realisation is a progression for them.
    Similarly in Zen, asking who am I is to directly experience presence. How about asking a koan of what is the cup? What is the chirping bird, the thunder clap? What is its purpose?
    When I talked about anatta, it is a direct insight of Presence and recognizing what we called background presence, is in the forms and colours, sounds and sensations, clean and pure. Authentication is be authenticated by all things. Also there is no presence other than that. What we call background is really just an image of foreground Presence, even when Presence is assuming its subtle formless all pervasiveness.
    However due to ignorance, we have a very inherent and dual view, if we do see through the nature of presence, the mind continues to be influenced by dualistic and inherent tendencies. Many teach to overcome it through mere non conceptuality but this is highly misleading.
    Thusness also wrote:
    The anatta I realized is quite unique. It is not just a realization of no-self. But it must first have an intuitive insight of Presence. Otherwise will have to reverse the phases of insights

  • Anurag Jain
    What you call anatta is nothing but avyakta Prakriti in Advaita.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    No, what i call anatta is totally unknown in advaita


  • Soh Wei Yu
    And also 98% or more of buddhist “realised” masters and teachers do not realise what I call anatta. They too do not go beyond I AM and one mind


  • Soh Wei Yu
    In the whole of china and taiwan, only two teachers I can find have realised what i realised -
    Zen Master Hui Lu and Zen Master Hong Wen Liang.
    You can see how rare it is.

    Soh Wei Yu you will have to do more than assertions 🙂 There is nothing unknown to Advaita because Self is beyond space and time.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    Look, we are arguing past each other. I have realised what you realised and you have not realised what I have realised. Of course I understand you are not convinced, so be it.
    I rather prefer Buddha’s version of omniscience since it lines up with my current insight:

    Soh Wei Yu I have realized that which has always been realized 🙂


  • Anurag Jain
    Soh Wei Yu omniscience is a duality. In Self, which is partless, there is nothing apart from itself to be known. Self is knolwedge itself.
    Buddhism, by the way has come from the Vedas. It has commonalities with Sankhya.


  • Soh Wei Yu
    Buddha was a refuter of Samkhya, although he learnt from and attained what the two Samkhya teachers he had taught him, he left them in pursuit of further realisation.
    See the commentary and discourse at:
    Also:
    "What you are suggesting is already found in Samkhya system. I.e. the twenty four tattvas are not the self aka purusha. Since this system was well known to the Buddha, if that's all his insight was, then his insight is pretty trivial. But Buddha's teachings were novel. Why where they novel? They were novel in the fifth century BCE because of his teaching of dependent origination and emptiness. The refutation of an ultimate self is just collateral damage." - Lopon Malcolm
    “The Pristine awareness is often mistaken as the 'Self'. It is especially difficult for one that has intuitively experience the 'Self' to accept 'No-Self'. As I have told you many times that there will come a time when you will intuitively perceive the 'I' -- the pure sense of Existence but you must be strong enough to go beyond this experience until the true meaning of Emptiness becomes clear and thorough. The Pristine Awareness is the so-called True-Self' but why we do not call it a 'Self' and why Buddhism has placed so much emphasis on the Emptiness nature? This then is the true essence of Buddhism. It is needless to stress anything about 'Self' in Buddhism; there are enough of 'Logies' of the 'I" in Indian Philosophies. If one wants to know about the experience of 'I AM', go for the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita. We will not know what Buddha truly taught 2500 years ago if we buried ourselves in words. Have no doubt that The Dharma Seal is authentic and not to be confused.
    When you have experienced the 'Self' and know that its nature is empty, you will know why to include this idea of a 'Self' into Buddha-Nature is truly unnecessary and meaningless. True Buddhism is not about eliminating the 'small Self' but cleansing this so called 'True Self' (Atman) with the wisdom of Emptiness.” - John Tan, 2005

    Soh Wei Yu the perceiver is an object to Self. And the Self cannot be experienced. Please convey this to John Tan 🙂


  • Anurag Jain
    And neither can the Self be known, because You Are Self.


  • Anurag Jain
    Buddha gives a view of dependent origination which is different from Sankhya but like Sankhya he gives a reality to Prakriti.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anurag Jain you should read Boddhisattvacharyavatara chapter on Prajna. Samkhya view is completely obliberated there. I reccomend "Nectar of Manjushri's Speech" for easier read.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, please answer me whether Buddhism denies reality to the world of phenomena.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    In essence Buddhadharma has no view. The tathagata has done away with views.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Oneness is just another view on the absolute.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, are you talking about absolute?!


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    There are languages which don't have distinction between plural and singular with regards to many phenomena. Clinging to one is just yet another form of clinging to a concept - in this case a number.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, to the Self all languages are objects. All views are objects, right view, wrong view or no view.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Also Buddha calls teaching that all pertains to one self or all is one self "completely" "a fool's teaching" in the Pali Canon. So even though Buddhadharma arose in a Vedic world - it doesn't buy into central ontological premise of the Vedas.

    Robert, it is talking of emptiness which is very much part of the "fools teaching" Buddha was referring to 🙂 Please read Katha Upanishad. The Self is beyond emptiness, beyond being and non-being.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anurag Jain you don't understand emptiness clearly.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    So how about you read what I reccomended you and then I read that Upanishad? Then we can discuss, deal?


  • Anurag Jain
    The Anatta experience is an experience located in space and time. It did not exist at one time and then the insight arises.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anatta is a seal - not an experience.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    You don't know what Anatta is, do you? 😛


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, call it a seal. It does not exist at some time and then it comes to be known.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, I know that Anatta is known at one point and then it becomes known. I know that this knowing is an occurrence in time.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anurag Jain haha the same could be said about the Self. It does not exist at some time and then it comes to be known xD


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, no that's not the same with Self. It exists at all times.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    So claiming that about Anatta is as stupid as claiming that about the Self. It's just a misunderstanding on the nature of these realisations.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    And Anatta is always already so.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert Self exist at all times. The insight happens in time.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Same with Anatta. So you have failed to prove your point. In the meantime I've gotta go so have a good day 🙂


  • Anurag Jain
    Yes. Who knows Anatta?


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert. Have a good day 🙂


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anurag Jain as a PS: Anatta is revealed when the illusion of the self - including the knower - is extinguished 😉

    Robert, just an assertion 🙂


  • Soh Wei Yu
    Robert is very clear. Anatta is a realisation of what is always already the case. Anyone who speaks of anatta as a stage or experience is deluded.


  • Anurag Jain
    Soh Wei Yu my question was, who knows anatta? Clear and simple 🙂


  • Soh Wei Yu
    That is a wrong question to ask for anatta as it has hidden assumptions.
    We discussed before.

    Do this and your question will be answered.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert,and as regarding views and positions, I have already said that all these are objects to Self.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Conceptual answer will not do you any good.


  • Anurag Jain
    All answers are concepts. All experiences are objects to Self.


  • Anurag Jain
    But Self is not a concept in Self realization.


  • Anurag Jain
    One can talk of Self as a concept of course.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    People who think Jesus speaks to them are also sure it is not a concept. Or people who are attached to materiality think its not a concept.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    So your experience does not prove anything as you are just assuming something and assuming its reality.

    Anurag Jain simple question. What do I do that for? Tell me the goal first.


  • Anurag Jain
    Yes Robert, you have to learn from someone right.


  • Anurag Jain
    It takes years and years of shravana, Manana and Nidhidhyasana.




  • Anurag Jain
    Shravana means listening. Manana means asking questions and resolving all doubts and Nidhidhyasana is a contemplaton after all doubts are resolved.

    Robert, learning about reality by eliminating all falsity.


  • John Tan
    Anurag Jain, convey what to me?

    Robert, am I speaking to Soh? Oh sorry.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    I dont assume there is a who therefore I cant answer your question without making assumption I dont hold.


  • Anurag Jain
    Robert, oh I understand. We will get into an infinite regress 🙂 I will ask who is that "who does not assume" 🙂


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Anurag Jain relatively or absolutely?


  • John Tan
    Anurag Jain, knowing is relative. To know is to measure and compare. Knowingness is beyond knowing. Knowingness is realized not by the relativity of a conditioned mind. U need to leap out of the conditioned.
    I-I or I M is a direct and gapless authentication.


  • Anurag Jain
    John Tan absolutely agreed.


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Im speaking relatively.
    If you prefer I will use words "there is no assumption of who in the absolute truth"


  • Robert Dominik Tkanka
    Obviously the language is based on words like who or selves.

    Anurag Jain an experience is an after thought.
