    I know what you mean by the demons like unwanted things. What I’ve learned recently with Vipassana meditation is that we hold on to things that should be impermanent which then manifests itself, maybe in the form of demons. Interesting you mention emptying your mind. I find when emptying my mind, I found things I’ve been holding onto that should’ve been let go that have manifested in knots on my back. Time for a therapeutic massage. on 04 August 2011 / 6:26 PM

      You are very right, Selami when you say clinging to things that are impermanent leads to dukkha and vedana, in other words misery. Vipassana practice develops our ability to look at those things, through constant observations and maintain samatha, that is Equanimity in our response to the world. That is the only way to avoid new knots from forming as well as dissolution of old knots, thereby altering the effects of the old kamma.

      Bhavatu Sabba Mangalam!!
