Clusters and Elements »

Friends:

     Detaching Release from all Internal & External:



The Blessed Buddha once said:

Bhikkhus, desire and lust for any form, for any feeling, for any perception,
for any construction & for any consciousness is a corruption of the mind!
Desire and lust for the earth element: All that is Solid...
Desire and lust for the water element: All that is Fluid...
Desire and lust for the fire element: All that is Hot...
Desire and lust for the air element: All that is Moving...
Desire and lust for the space element: All that is 3-Dimensional and
Desire and lust for the consciousness element: All sense awareness itself,
is a corruption of the mind! When a Bhikkhu has overcome and left all
behind these mental corruptions, his mind seeks for inward withdrawal…
A mind prepared and enhanced by such renunciation becomes wieldy, fit,
focused and open for those subtle mental states, that are to be realized
only by direct experience and assured knowledge...
