11: Questionable Ultimate Reality | Discussion

A Dhamma discussion based on the question…

“Would it be possible to talk about Buddhism’s conventional and ultimate truths?

“As I understand it, conventional truth is how most people experience the world, and the ultimate truth is seen when doing correct Vipassana meditation. And practitioners well versed in Abhidhamma will understand between the two truths.

I sometimes use the Mahasi method (noting thoughts, sensations, etc.) when doing insight meditation, but I find my mind to be a little unruly. However, there are the rare exceptions of mental clarity, which encourages me to continue.”
