The Deepest Tranquilization is that of
Greed, Hate & Ignorance!
The Blessed Buddha once said:
Formerly, when that person was
still ignorant, then he was
possessed & obsessed
by sexual & sensual greed, lust, desire, yearning, envy, jealousy, and miserliness...
He was obsessed & possessed by hate, anger, ill-will, irritation and
He was obsessed and possessed by ignorance, doubt, delusion & plain foolishness...
These evils are now overcome by him, eradicated, like a slashed & uprooted tree,
completely destroyed, and therefore unable to sprout into existence ever again!
Therefore such Bhikkhu, thus endowed, is indeed enriched by the highest Calm!
tranquillization is his unshakable foundation! Since this, friends, is the very
highest and most precious: The Tranquillization of Greed,
Hate, and Ignorance!
