The Blessed Buddha once
Hard it is to see the
unconstructed, the undistorted! This independent state is not easily
Craving is all cut for the One, who so knows, since he sees, that there is
nothing to cling to ... !!! …
Udana – Inspiration: VIII - 2
In any dependence there is bound
to be instability. In Independence there cannot be any instability.
When there is no liable instability, no feeble wavering, there is a quiet
calm, stillness, serenity & peace.
When there is such solid tranquillity, then there is no tendency to drift,
no attraction, neither mental push
nor pull, nor any strain of appeal or repulsion. When there is no
attraction, no drift, no bending, then there
is no movement, no development, and neither any coming nor any going.
Neither any starting nor any ending...
When there is neither any coming nor any going, then there is neither any
ceasing nor any reappearing...
There being neither ceasing nor reappearing, then there is neither any
here, there, beyond, nor in between...
This – just this – is the End of Suffering.
Inspiration: VIII - 4
Having understood this
unconstructed state, released in mind, with the chain to becoming
they attain to the sublime essence of all states. Delighting in the calmed
end of craving, those steady
Noble Ones have left all being & becoming behind.
Itivuttaka: Thus spoken 38
Nibbana is The Highest
One, who so knows, sees, that
there is nothing to cling to ... !!! …
Have a nice released, relaxed & peaceful day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
