Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

The 4 Truths perform 4 Functions in a single Moment!


The Blessed Buddha once said this:
Bhikkhus, any one who sees
Suffering, sees also The Cause of Suffering,
sees also
The End of Suffering, sees also The Way to End all Suffering..
Any one who sees
The Cause of Suffering, sees also Suffering Ending, &
The Way. And any one who sees The End, sees also Pain, Cause, & The Way.
Consequently any one who sees
The Way to End Pain, sees also Suffering,
sees also
The Cause of Suffering, sees also The Ending of Suffering!



Comments on Coming Through:
Breakthrough to the Truths thus performs 4 functions at a single moment!
4 of these breakthroughs occur at each path-entry-moment to Nobility...
The effect is each time an even deeper irreversible mental purification!
When these 4 Truths are flashing forth & forever transforms one's life
and mentality, Nibbāna is the single object pointed to as a possible escape!
There is only one single Exit out of this burning cinema of appearances...
A Matrix of Clinging!
