Friends:

Everything Converges on Feeling (VedanA)!


The 3 Kinds of Feeling are:
1: Pleasant Feeling that is agreeable, delightful and likable.
2: Painful Feeling that is disagreeable, repulsive and distressing.
3: Neutral Feeling that is an indifferent neither pleasure, nor pain.

The 5 Kinds of Feeling are:
1: Pleasant Bodily Feeling that is agreeable and arisen in the body.
2: Painful Bodily Feeling that is disagreeable and arisen in the body. 
3: Pleasant Mental Feeling that is agreeable and arisen in the mind.
4: Painful Mental Feeling that is disagreeable and arisen in the mind.
5: Neutral Feeling that is an indifferent neither pleasure, nor pain.

The 6 Kinds of Feeling are:
1: Feeling that is arisen from visual eye contact.
2: Feeling that is arisen from auditory ear contact. 
3: Feeling that is arisen from olfactory nose contact.
4: Feeling that is arisen from gustatory tongue contact.
5: Feeling that is arisen from tactile skin and body contact.
6: Feeling that is arisen from mental mind and ideational contact.

The cause of Feeling is Momentary Sense Contact:
Ceasing of this momentary contact instantly ceases the feeling!
The resulting effect of Feeling is Craving, if the mind is untrained...
Noble Awareness of arising feeling can prevent the arising of craving.
All early Buddhist training of mind control aims at this crucial purpose:
To break the automatic emergence of craving, when feeling arises!  

If the feeling is pleasant arises craving towards the object...
Pleasant feeling is therefore the cause of desire, lust and greed!
If the feeling is painful arises craving away from the object...
Painful feeling is therefore the cause of aversion, anger and hate!
If the feeling is neutral arises craving for neglect of the object...
Neutral feeling is therefore the cause of
ignorance, and confusion!

Since ignorance, greed and hate are the three roots of all Evil and
their absence are the three roots of all Freedom it verily confirms:
Every state and all experienced phenomena converges on this Feeling...
