the Final Knowledge?
The Blessed Buddha once pointed out:
1: Considering the
Transience of all
Constructions, leads to final knowledge...
2: Contemplating the
Pain within all passing
states, leads to final knowledge...
3: Comprehending the
Impersonality of all phenomena, leads to final knowledge...
4: Considering the advantage of
Withdrawal by Detachment, leads to final knowledge...
5: Contemplating the
Fading Away of Greed by fine
Disillusion, leads to final knowledge...
6: Comprehending the
Freedom, Bliss & Peace of Stilled
Ceasing, leads to final knowledge...
One endowed with Final Knowledge
Rebirth has ceased, completed is this Noble life, done is what had to be
there is no state of being higher, beyond, or after this...
