Friends:

When has one penetrated & arrived at True Wisdom?


 

Once, a certain not very well-known Bhikkhu asked the Blessed Buddha:
Venerable Sir: True Wisdom is it said. What is really True Wisdom?
Venerable Sir: When has one arrived at such true Wisdom?
The Blessed Gotama Buddha then pointed out:
Understanding and knowing that: This is Suffering is True Wisdom;
Understanding that: Craving is the Cause of Suffering is True Wisdom;
Understanding that: No Craving is the End of Suffering is True Wisdom;
Understanding that: The Noble 8-fold Way ends Suffering is True Wisdom!
All this profound understanding and direct knowledge of the absolute is
True Wisdom, and it is by that very penetrating comprehension, that glimpse
of a far-reaching ultimate reality, that one has arrived at this true Wisdom!
Therefore, Bhikkhu, an effort should be made much of
now to understand:
This is Suffering; an effort should be made much of now to comprehend:
This is the Cause of Suffering; an effort should be made now so to realize:
This is the End of Suffering; An effort should be made now to penetrate,
recognize, and develop, This is the Way leading to the End of Suffering..
