The 5 Destinations »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


The Four Noble Truths prevent Downfall Rebirth!

The Blessed
Gotama Buddha once explained:
Bhikkhus and friends, see this little dust, I have taken up upon the nail of my little-finger,
what do you think is most: This tiny amount dust or this great planet Earth?
The Bhikkhus then responded: Venerable Sir, this great planet Earth is much more, incomparable more...
The minute speck of dust is trifling, microscopic, negligible in comparison!
The Blessed Gotama Buddha then succinctly pointed out:
Similarly and exactly so too, Bhikkhus and friends, those beings are few and quite rare, who are reborn
among humans or devas! Beings who are reborn elsewhere, lower, as non-humans, in the screaming hell,
as scared animals, as hungry ghosts, or as mad demons are much more numerous and common...
Why is it so? Because, these beings have not understood the
4 Noble Truths!
What four?
The 1st Noble Truth: This is Suffering;
The 2nd Noble Truth: Craving is the Cause of Suffering;
The 3rd Noble Truth: No Craving is the End of Suffering;
The 4th Noble Truth: The Noble 8-fold Way ceases all Suffering,
Therefore, Bhikkhus and friends, exertion should be made Now to understand:
All this is Suffering; This Greedy Craving is the sole Cause of all Suffering;
No Craving is the End of Suffering; The Noble 8-fold Way Ends all Suffering,
Therefore should effort to fathom these 4 Noble Truths be made NOW!
