At Savatthi. While once seated, the Venerable Radha asked the Blessed One:
Venerable Sir, one says: Suffering!! What, Venerable Sir, is suffering?
Form, Radha, is suffering, feeling is suffering, perception is suffering,
mental constructions are suffering, consciousness is suffering...!!!
Understanding this, Bhikkhus, a well instructed Noble Disciple experiences
disgust towards form, disgust towards feeling, disgust towards perception,
disgust towards mental construction, & disgust towards consciousness itself!
Experiencing disgust, he becomes disillusioned! Through disillusion his mind
is released. When it is released, one instantly knows: This mind is liberated,
and one understands: Extinguished is birth, this Noble Life is all completed,
done is what should be done, there is no state of being beyond this...
