Meaning is dependent on context. The definition of a word depends on the context of the sentence it is in. Similarly the meaning of any experience depends on one’s background ontology.
Commentators such as Buddhaghosh obscured the meaning of the Buddha’s teaching by shifting its context to a religious philosophy instead of a transcendental practice. In many cases they argued directly against the Buddha’s point of view.
That is because they wanted to make ‘sense’ out of the words of the Buddha without doing the practices he taught and getting the direct experience. They were working with words and symbols, but Nibbāna is ineffable and undefinable. It can only be experienced, not described.
