Ceasing of Suffering »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


No Craving entails absence of Suffering!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
What, now, is this Noble Truth on the Elimination of all Suffering?
It is the complete fading away ,and irreversible elimination of all Craving,
the rejection and leaving of it, and the liberating release from it!
SN 56:11

But where may this craving vanish, where may it be extinguished?
Wherever in the world, there are delightful and pleasurable contacts!
Right there and then may this craving be overcome, and quenched...
DN 22

Be it in the past, the present, or in any future, whatever true recluse
considers all delightful, attractive, and pleasurable things in this world
as impermanent anicca, as suffering dukkha, and as without a self anatta,
as diseases, and as cancers, it is he who will conquer craving...
SN 12:66

By final fading away and elimination of craving, clinging also ceases;
By the elimination of clinging, the process of becoming also ceases;
By the elimination of the process of becoming, rebirth also ceases;
Through the elimination of all rebirth, all decay, ageing and death,
sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief, and despair is finally extinguished...
Only that is the eradication of this entire mass of Suffering... 
SN 12:43
