Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

In order to eradicate any internal conceit leading to => external EGOism,
In order to reach the bliss of selfless egolessness by not assuming any identity
For the safety of the 'individual beings' & the common society as well
in the present in the future, uprooting egoism is a crucial mustů
      

 At Savatthi the Exalted Buddha once said this:
 Bhikkhus and Friends:
 The Body & any Form is now, always was, & always will be Impermanent!
 The Body & any Form is now, always was, & always will be Painful!
 The Body & any Form is now, always was, & always will be without any Self, Me, or Mine!
 It was so both in the past, will be so in the future, not to speak of the present.
 So clearly seeing, friends, the well-trained Noble friend
 is not concerned with the past (young) body that was before,
 is not longing for any future (better) body or external form,
 and is disgusted by any present body and external form,
 seeks detachment from any present body & all external forms,
 seeks ceasing of the present body & all external forms...

 Any Feeling is now, always was, & always will be Transient!
 Any Feeling is now, always was, & always will be ultimately Disappointing!
 Any Feeling is now, always was, & always will be without any Self, Me, or Mine!
 It was so both in the past, will be so in the future, not to speak of the present.
 So clearly seeing, friends, the well-trained Noble friend
 is not concerned with any past, now gone, feeling that was before,
 is not longing for any future kind of feeling whatsoever,
 and is disgusted by all kinds of present feeling,
 seeks detachment from the present feeling,
 seeks ceasing of the present feeling...

 Any Experience is now, always was, & always will be Evanescent!
 Any Experience is now, always was, & always will be Disturbing Distress!
 Any Experience is now, always was, & always will be without any Self, Me, or Mine!
 It was so both in the past, will be so in the future, not to speak of the present.
 So clearly seeing, friends, the well-trained Noble friend
 is not concerned with any past experience or memory that was before,
 is not longing for any future experience or perception,
 and is disgusted by any present experience,
 seeks release from the present experience,
 seeks ceasing of the actual experience...

 Any Mental Construction is now, always was, & always will be Momentary!
 Any Mental Construction is now, always was, & always will be Frustrating Futile Folly!
 Any Mental Construction is now, always was, & always will be without any Self, Me, or Mine!
 It was so both in the past, will be so in the future, not to speak of the present.
 So clearly seeing, friends, the well-trained Noble friend
 is not concerned with any past mental construction that was before,
 is not longing for any future kind of mental construction, thought or intention,
 and is disgusted by any and all present kinds of mental construction,
 seeks detachment from all present mental construction,
 seeks ceasing of the present mental construction...

 Any kind of Consciousness is now, always was, & always will be Vanishing!
 Any kind of Consciousness is now, always was, & always will be Dukkha!
 Any kind of Consciousness is now, always was, & always will be without any Self, Me, or Mine!
 It was so both in the past, will be so in the future, not to speak of the present.
 So clearly seeing, friends, the well-trained Noble friend
 is not concerned with any past kind of consciousness that was before,
 is not longing for any future mode of consciousness,
 and is disgusted by all present moments of consciousness,
 seeks detachment from any present sort of consciousness,
 seeks stilling & ceasing of any present consciousness...

 Comments: Radical Revolution IMHO:
 Going unburdened without an EGO on your back;
 one goes VERY light as elated above the ground!
 Any pride, arrogance, and subtle defensiveness
 is all evaporated, since who is there to defend?

Empty, Hollow & Void is the EGO concept!
