The 7 Links produce Enlightenment...


There are these 7 links leading to final Enlightenment...

1: Awareness is a link to Awakening.
2: Investigation of the states is a link to Awakening.
3: Energy is a link to Awakening.
4: Joy is a link to Awakening.
5: Tranquillity is a link to Awakening.
6: Concentration is a link to Awakening.
7: Equanimity is a link to Awakening.

They lead to, and induce Enlightenment! Thus are they links to awakening:
They are themselves enlightened, in this way are they links to awakening.
They are enlightened, since they embrace the root cause of awakening.
They are enlightened, since they provide and equip the cause of awakening.
They are enlightened, since they induce ripening of the cause of awakening.
They are enlightened, since they enhance the root cause of awakening.
They are enlightened, since they completely perfect the cause of awakening.



How do these 7 Links to Awakening remain established, and anchored in mind?
The Awareness link remains by
no attention being given to other states.
The Awareness link remains by the sign of being directed to continuously.
The Awareness link remains by the sign-less state being given attention.
The Awareness link remains by
no attention given to mental proliferations.
The Awareness link remains
by attention being given to the ceasing of craving.
The Awareness link to Awakening indeed remains fixed and anchored in mind
in these 5 ways. Exactly and similarly so with the other 6 links to Awakening.
