One single idea can
there is one particular idea, when a Bhikkhu
rightly disgusts this single scheme,
rightly detaches from this distinct concept,
rightly releases mentally from this sole dependence,
rightly sees the final end of this universal condition,
having rightly and thoroughly understood this unique idea,
then he is one, who makes an end of suffering in this very life!

4: The Cluster of Clinging to Construction...
5: The Cluster of Clinging to Consciousness...
This process is thereby kept burning, since it is
sustained by this 4 fold flow of
Nibbāna (Sanskrit: Nirvāna),
which literally means 'blown out' like a candle,
is only reached by extinguishing this fire of being, by denying it new
When all fuel is burned up, any fire stops and becomes peacefully cool!
