Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends!

    Complete Detachment by Relinquishing All!



Friends, we should train in this very way:
I will not cling to neither the eye, nor to the ear, nor to the nose,
nor to the tongue, nor to the body, nor to the mind...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on awareness of any
sights, sounds, smells, tastes, touches, nor any mental states...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on any visual contact,
auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, or any mental contact...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on any feeling aroused
from all these visual, otherwise sensed or ... mental contacts...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on any form, emotion,
perception, construction, or any deliberately directed attention!
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on any solidity, fluidity,
heat, motion, space, nor on any sort of mentality whatsoever...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on any infinitude of space,
any infinitude of consciousness, any sphere of nothingness, any sphere
of neither-perception-nor-non-perception, nor on any other subtle state...
Thus will my consciousness neither depend on anything in this world,
nor on anything in any other transcendent world beyond this world...
Thus will my consciousness be independent of what is seen, heard,
sensed, cognized, encountered, searched for & examined by the mind...
It will be without base, source, & object, unconnected, unconstrained,
unrelated, autonomous, fully freed, sovereign, sublime and supreme...
This -only this- itself leads to the released liberation of final freedom!
