Just final thoughts.
DO is hard and complex for regular human mind, you need to raise your mind to jhana level to understand. Hence try to understand four noble truth first and practice good morality to calm your actions, then you will get a calm minds.
And Jhana is purity of mind, calm mind, expansive mind, very focus mind if needed, it is super normal, silent mind, clear mind, free of senses desire, free of hindrances, etc. You need to let go things in your mind and have 7 foundations to get into it that is right view/understanding, right thoughts, right action, right speech, right lifestyle, right effort/practice, right introspection (“mindfulness”). To get into jhana is 24 hours effort/practice and not just 1-2 hours. One can be in Jhana for 24 hours/day.(See AN 3.63 Venagapura sutta)
Also, When someone say something/statement, is it based for your good or not good? Can it be verified here and now? Is it based on direct experience or not?
Read AN3.65 Kesamutti Sutta,
Please, Kālāmas, don’t go by oral transmission, don’t go by lineage, don’t go by testament, don’t go by canonical authority, don’t rely on logic, don’t rely on inference, don’t go by reasoned contemplation, don’t go by the acceptance of a view after consideration, don’t go by the appearance of competence, and don’t think ‘The ascetic is our respected teacher.’ But when you know for yourselves (direct experience): ‘These things are unskillful, blameworthy, criticized by sensible people, and when you undertake them, they lead to harm and suffering’, then you should give them up.
… These things are skillful, blameless, praised by sensible people, and when you undertake them, they lead to welfare and happiness’, then you should acquire them and keep them.
Also, What good about Buddha teaching (dhammanussati on any sutta) is
Buddha teaching has to be Clear and concise, can be experienced through our senses, independent of time (here and now), come and see for oneself, can be understood by Wise person (need to be practiced personally, not because of hearsay).
Buddha can show the way, but you need to practice & follow the instruction step by step (MN107 etc). Can’t be skipped, hence it is graduated training and not a sudden training to be awakened.
Regarding 3 life of DO,
Please check MN 38 Maha Tanha Sankaya Sutta, Buddha admonished a monk who has a view of consciousness transmigrate from one life to another.
Also MN2 Sabba Asava Sutta states if you attend to past, present, future. You are not free from suffering. But if you attend to four noble truths, you will abandon the 3 low fetters.
*And what are the defilements that should be given up by seeing?
Take an uneducated ordinary person who has not seen the noble ones, and is neither skilled nor trained in the teaching of the noble ones. They’ve not seen good persons, and are neither skilled nor trained in the teaching of the good persons. They don’t understand to which things they should pay attention and to which things they should not pay attention.
This is how they attend improperly: ‘Did I exist in the past? Did I not exist in the past? What was I in the past? How was I in the past? After being what, what did I become in the past? Will I exist in the future? Will I not exist in the future? What will I be in the future? How will I be in the future? After being what, what will I become in the future?’ Or they are undecided about the present thus: ‘Am I? Am I not? What am I? How am I? This sentient being—where did it come from? And where will it go?’
An uneducated ordinary person who is fettered by views is not freed from birth, old age, and death, from sorrow, lamentation, pain, sadness, and distress. They’re not freed from suffering, I say.
But take an educated noble disciple who has seen the noble ones, and is skilled and trained in the teaching of the noble ones. They’ve seen good persons, and are skilled and trained in the teaching of the good persons
They properly attend: ‘This is suffering’ … ‘This is the origin of suffering’ … ‘This is the cessation of suffering’ … ‘This is the practice that leads to the cessation of suffering’. And as they do so, they give up three fetters: identity view, wavering mental state, and heteronomous morality (morality that based on commendment) . These are called the defilements that should be given up by seeing.
May true Buddha teaching last for long time, for the benefit of people who want to hear it and practice it.
May beings gain unshakable confidence in Buddha, Dhamma and Ariya Sangha.
