Best among Gods and Men »

Friends:

The Ultimate Goal is complete Extinguishing of Craving:

By the gradual stilling, giving up, fading away, letting go, relinquishing
and thus ceasing of all greed, desire, lust, craving, clinging, attachment,
adherence, obsession, and latent tendency towards the various elements
of forms, feelings, perceptions, constructions and kinds of consciousness,
the mind is finally said to be
well released...!
Therefore; those recluses and monks, who are well released by extinction
of craving, have reached the ultimate goal, and won absolute security from
bondage, they have achieved a sublime Nobility, they have accomplished the
supreme advantage! They are therefore best among all gods and all humans!
Even these mighty Devas as Indra, Brahmā and Pajapati praise them with
these long standing ovations from afar:

Homage to you, Thoroughbred Man!
Admirable are you, Supreme Man!
We do not know on what you Meditate!
