In the universe, there are no persons, beings and things but only mind and matter. The knowledge which can discern significantly the characteristics of impermanence (anicca), unsatisfactoriness (dukkha) and insubstantiality (anatta),etc., is called Insight (Vipassana). Those who lack Insight Knowledge regard the combination of mind and matter as human being, celestial being, brahma, man, woman. etc., and the combination of corporeal entities as houses, schools, rest-houses, trees, forests, mountains, etc. They also miscomprehend these beings and things to be permanent (nicca), satisfactory (sukha), substantial (atta) and pleasant (subha).
Although the blind worldings think so, a virtuous person who has practiced Insight Meditation penetratively knows that all beings and things are the aggregates of physical and mental phenomena, and that they are impermanent (anicca), unsatisfactory (dukkha), insubstantial (antta) and loathsome (asuba). Such special penetrative knowledge is called “Vipassana”.
