Ven. and good Buddha-Parisata, Interested,
The Sublime Buddha said that two things are directly necessary to gain right view, a footing in his path. Next to proper attention, attention of what gives birth (to suffering), the VOICE of someone is needed as pointer toward the unrelated.
Now, can it be said, is it possible, that one reading the good(!) Dhamma, having no perception of relation to it's origin, is capable to gain right view?
Is it possible, say by simply reading of what comes along, to "listen" to the Dhamma, "hear" it?
Sota-panna possible without Sota, without sotānugata?
Is it possible that just one who already had gained it in previous existences would be reminded by "just reading" while others stay still unrelated to the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha?
