Friends:

Understanding the 4 Truths is indispensable!



The Blessed
Gotama Buddha once explained:

If anyone should
ever postulate: "Without having made the breakthrough
to understanding:
This is Suffering; Craving is the Cause of Suffering;
No Craving is the End of Suffering; The 8-fold Way Ends all Suffering,
as it really is, I will make a final and complete end of all suffering!"
Then this is hopeless, impossible, impracticable, unachievable, and untrue!
Just as if anyone would build the second floor of a house without first
having built the first floor...
However if anyone should wish: "Having made this crucial breakthrough
to understanding:
This is Suffering; Craving is the Cause of Suffering;
No Craving is the End of Suffering; The 8-fold Way Ends all Suffering,
as it really is, I will make a final and complete end of all suffering!"
Then this is realistic, possible, likely, promising, feasible, and realizable!
Just as if one first having built the first floor of a house easily could
build and add the second floor... Therefore should an effort be made
to really understand, see, comprehend and realize these
4 Noble Truths!




Comment:
Many beings embark on raising a grand metaphysical religious "Tower", from
which they can look down proud, yet forgetting all about to making a solid
foundation first! Result: At first wind this unstable tower tumble & they fall...
Back to square one again! There is only this ONE way: The Noble 8-fold Way...
Never give up developing this Way further, deeper, better and more pure!
Stay grounded! Pay attention to these facts and truths as they really are...
