How to be Released into the End of Suffering?
The Blessed Buddha once said:
Foundations of Awareness, when firmly established
by development and cultivation, are both Noble and Liberating! They lead
one out into the complete elimination of all Suffering. What four?
Here, Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu lives
and dwells, aware and clearly comprehending,
while continuously contemplating
and reflecting upon:
1: The Body merely as a decaying
and ownerless formation..
2: The Feelings just as conditioned
responses fading away..
3: The Mind only as a set of ingrained
and habituated moods..
4: Any Phenomenon simply as a
mentally constructed appearance..
Thereby removing any yearning,
urge, envy and frustration rooted in this world..
of Awareness, Bhikkhus, when firmly established
such development and cultivation, are both Noble and Releasing! They guide
one to the Exit, to the Escape by an absolute destruction of all Suffering!
