Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

The Purpose of Purification is Release:


Buddha explained that it is for the sake of Nibbāna  that one trains the mind:
Morality is for the sake of self-control, self-control is for the sake of no regrets;
Absence of regrets is for the sake of joy, joy is for the for the sake of bliss;
Bliss is for the sake of tranquillity, tranquillity is for the sake of happiness;
Happiness is for the sake of absorption into one-pointed concentration;
Concentration is for the sake of knowledge and vision of how reality comes to be;
Knowledge and vision of how reality comes into being is for the sake of disgust; 
Disgust is for the sake of disillusion, dry disillusion is for the sake of relinquishment;
Mental relinquishment; is for the sake of knowledge and vision of awakening release;
Knowledge and vision of release is for the sake of
Nibbāna without any clinging left!
For this purpose is this speech, for this purpose is this noble advice!
For this purpose should one pay attention to this chain of causes!
That is: For the purpose of release of mind through non-clinging...
