Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

   What is this Chief Understanding Ability?



The Blessed Buddha once said:

What, Bhikkhus, is the Ability to Understand?
Here, Bhikkhus, any Noble Disciple, who is both intelligent and wise;
is endowed with understanding of cause and effect,
is endowed with understanding of arising and ceasing,
is endowed with understanding of conditioned dependency,
which is Noble, penetrative, and leading to the complete irreversible
elimination of any and all Suffering...
He understands it, as it really is: This is Suffering!
He understands it, as it really is: Craving is the Cause of Suffering!
He understands it, as it really is: No craving is the Ceasing of Suffering!
He understands it, as it really is: The Noble 8-fold Way is the End of Suffering!
This is called the Ability to Understand!

Understanding is knowing, and seeing the 4 Noble Truths!
Ignorance is not knowing, and not seeing the 4 Noble Truths!
