sa lam - Stages and Paths

What we will actually go through in the next blog postings is called sa lam - stages and paths. Each lam (path) has certain threshold points the practitioner reaches, sa, or stages, or grounds. To understand those is like the GPS system of the practitioner, one could adjust and move on to the the next sa.

sa is a very common words, it also means earth, or the earth element, as well as the letter sa. This is where you need to look at the translation context and figure out that sa here is in a medical text so it's about the earth element, while here it is about sa lam.

Sa is also an easy letter to learn -- write a couple of pages with this letter.
