Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Actually so, invariable, & not otherwise!

 


The Blessed Buddha once said this:
Bhikkhus, there are these four things, that are actually so, invariable,
not otherwise
... What four?
Suffering
is actually so, invariable, not otherwise...
The Cause of Suffering is
actually so, invariable, not otherwise...
The End of Suffering
is actually so, invariable, and not otherwise...
The Way to End all Suffering is
actually so, invariable, and not otherwise...
These 4 Noble Truths are actually & exactly so, invariable, & not otherwise
...
Therefore, Bhikkhus, an effort should be dedicated now really to understand:
All this is Suffering! An effort should be made much of to truly comprehend:
Craving is the Cause of Suffering!
An effort should be brought forth to realize:
No Craving is the End of Suffering! Striving should be made to break through,
reinforce, and develop: This Noble 8-fold Way, which ceases all Suffering...
