The External Transience »

Friends:

All External Objects are always Fading Away & Vanishing!



At Savatthi The Blessed Buddha said this:
Bhikkhus, all forms are impermanent! What is impermanent is suffering!
What is suffering is no-self! What is no-self should be seen as it really is
with correct, true, relevant and realistic understanding thus:
This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self ...
All sounds are impermanent ... All smells are impermanent ...
All flavours are impermanent ... All touches are impermanent ...
All Mental states are impermanent. What is impermanent is suffering...
What is suffering is no-self. What is no-self should be seen as it really is
with correct, true, relevant and realistic understanding thus:
This is neither me, nor mine, this I am not, this is not my self!
Seeing this, Bhikkhus, any educated Noble Disciple is disgusted with
all forms, sounds, smells, flavours, touches, and with any mental state ...
The experience of this disgust, brings disillusion and disenchantment!
Through this disillusion, the mind is all released! When it is liberated,
then there appears this assurance: "This mind is freed" and one instantly
understands: Rebirth is now ended, this Noble Life is fully concluded,
done is what should be done, there is no state beyond this...
