Question : (Unedited)
can someone explain what the buddhist view of these 3 things are.
One who knows..
i seem to see the the brain and mind as the same..
as i understanding of readings of Ajahn Chah teachings.
Mind as piece of meat.. natural state at rest.
only moved when abiding takes place.
is mind and brain same.. just no location of actual mind?
please.. make answer simple.
comming out of deap valley.
The simple answers are:
Brain: The piece of grey matter encased in the skull.
Mind: The invisible consciousness that activates the brain to think.
One who knows: In the Buddhist context, it means one who comprehends the 4 Noble Truths and the Noble Eighthfold Path.
An analogy by using computer terminology:
Brain: the hardware
Mind: the electrical current
One who knows: all the software.
