Things that can be clung to »


Craving => Clinging => Fear => Panic => Suffering!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, I will teach you the things that can be clung to, that bind & their chain!
Listen to that and pay attention: What, bhikkhus, are these phenomena, that can be
clung to, that bind, and what is the very chain of this addictive slavery of sensing?
The eye, the ear, the nose, the tongue, the body and the mind bhikkhus, are things
that can be clung to, that binds, while the desire, lust, longing, urge, yearning for &
wanting it, the fear & panic of loosing it, the clinging to it, is the very chain there...
Only by directly knowing these 6 senses as they are, only by fully understanding
these 6 sense sources, only by developing disgust towards and by leaving all behind
these 6 originators of commotion & noise, is one capable of eliminating Suffering...

All Craving -

Creates Clinging...

Culminating in Panic!
