Maha Moggallano describes his initial practice at entering the second jhana, it's obstruction by thinking, and the assistance given him by the Master.
Sariputta states that there is nothing in the world whatsoever that would cause him suffering even including the passing away of the Master. Note the presence in this sutta of the terms 'ahi'nkaara' and 'mama'nkaara': 'I-making' and 'My-making.' If these, why not 'own-making'?
