Overcoming Fear for a Bad Destiny!



Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
Bhikkhus, any Noble Disciple, who possesses four things has transcended all
fear of any bad future destination. What four?
1: Here, any Noble Disciple possesses confirmed confidence in the Buddha thus:
Worthy, honourable & perfectly self-Enlightened is the Buddha! Consummated in
knowledge & behaviour, totally transcended, expert in all dimensions, knower of all
worlds, unsurpassable trainer of those who can be tamed, teacher & guide of gods
as well as of humans, blessed, exalted, awakened & enlightened is the Buddha!
2: Any Noble Disciple possesses confirmed confidence in the Dhamma thus:
Perfectly formulated is this Buddha-Dhamma, visible right here & now, immediately
effective, timeless, inviting each & everyone to come and see for themselves,
inspect, examine & verify. Leading each & everyone through progress towards
perfection. Directly observable, experiencable & realizable by each intelligence...
3: Any Noble Disciple possesses confirmed confidence in the Sangha thus:
Perfectly training is this Noble Sangha community of the Buddha's Noble disciples:
Training the right way, the true way, the good way, the direct way! Therefore do
these 8 kinds of individuals, these 4 Noble pairs, deserve both gifts, self-sacrifice,
offerings, hospitality and reverential salutation with joined palms, since this Noble
Sangha community of the Buddha's Noble disciples, is an unsurpassable & forever
unsurpassed field of merit, in this world, for this world, to respect, and protect...
4: Any Noble Disciple possesses the Morality esteemed by the Noble ones:
Unbroken, untorn, unspotted, freeing, praised by the good, inducing concentration!
Any Noble Disciple, who possesses these four things has transcended and gone all
beyond all fear of a bad destination, rightly beyond all fear of a painful future...
