of all Mental Construction is NibbAna!
The Blessed Buddha once said:
Here, Ananda, the Bhikkhu considers it all like this:
"This is the supreme peace, this is sublime calm: The stilling of
the silencing of all mental construction,
the relinquishing of all the substrata
fuelling existence, the fading away
of all craving, a complete detachment,
the final mental release; a total
cessation, this - only this - is Nibbāna..."
In this way, Ananda, the Bhikkhu may enter a mental absorption in
there is no notion of 'I' and 'mine', no attacks of conceiving any
consciousness, or any external objects, and wherein he is both
released, and fully liberated through understanding of this all...
this silenced, and entirely stilled state there is neither any inclination to
"mine-making", nor any attacks of conceit by latent
identification, egotism, narcissism, or simple naive realism..
Nikāya AN 3:32
Knowing both what the inner
is, and what the outer is, one is neither stirred,
nor troubled any more! When thus stilled and imperturbable, there
neither any attraction, nor any
repulsion left... One has crossed and escaped
beyond all being, becoming, decaying, ageing, and death!
