Experiencing Disappointment »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


Disillusion Releases all Clinging and Attachment!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
What, Ānanda, is the experience of Disappointment with this entire World?
Whatever there is in the mind of clinging to the world, craving for the world,
concern for the world, longing for the world, tendency & inclination towards
the world, adherence & devotion to the world, bias, all this a Bhikkhu leaves,
gives up, keeps away, above & aloof, by relinquishing & releasing detachment!
This itself is the very experience of Disappointment, Disillusion, Discontent,
Disenchantment, Dislike, Distress & Dissatisfaction with this entire World...

Mental Phenomena related with the Craving that causes Suffering:
There are four kinds of Clinging:
1: Clinging to Desire for Sensing.
2: Clinging to various Wrong Views.
3: Clinging to rituals and superstition.
4: Clinging to the concept of a self, ego, I, me, identity, & the notion "I Am"!
All forms of clinging have to cease before any suffering is stilled...
Absence of Clinging is indeed Bliss!

There are Seven Latent Tendencies (Anusaya):

These drifting drives & lurking liabilities are often deeply hidden in the mind!

The worldling resorts back to the world like a worm resorts back to its hole!
The Noble freed by disa
ppointment leans, tends & inclines towards Nibbāna!

The Reward is:

Approach to
Nibbāna by relinquishing all longing back to this or any world!
