Ceasing => Bliss => NibbAna!
The Blessed Buddha once
Bhikkhus, when the
Foundations of Awareness are developed and
cultivated well, then they lead to revulsion, to disillusion, to ceasing,
to peace, to direct knowledge, to enlightenment, to Nibbāna
What four? When an honest and devoted Bhikkhu keenly considers:
1: The Body
just as frame, and neither as lasting, mine, nor attractive...
2: The Feeling as reaction, and neither as pleasant, my self, or stable...
3: The Mind merely as mood and neither as fine, I or Ego, or special...
4: Phenomena as states,
and neither as nice, permanent, or substantial...
of Awareness are developed and trained well,
then they lead to revulsion, to disillusion, to ceasing, to
stilling, to peace,
to direct knowledge, to enlightenment, and even to Nibbāna!
means comprehending impermanence, suffering, and no-self.
the gradual fading away of greed, aversion
Peace means absence of urge, craving, frustration and stirring activity.
Bliss means absence of pain
and sadness, and presence of Happiness.
signless, not created, not conditioned,
and not changing!
