Rubot, Give up.

Kojizen - then what does one do?

Rubot, Unfortunately, the Buddha doesn't mention in any Sutta or Sutra how to attain right view (the vision of nibbana) or bodhicittotpada (bodhicitta).

The only means acceptable we have for attaining nirvana or awakening (bodhi) is to transcend the psychophysical body. This is what the Buddha teaches throughout the Pali canon.

This sounds right. But how does one transcend the psychophysical body - what method does the Buddha prescribe?

Might have pissed me off years ago when the old psychophysical body was still in good shape and worthy of attachment.
