Friends:

Exceptionally Rare is the arising of the Links to Awakening!



The Blessed Buddha once said:

Bhikkhus, the exquisitely refined and sophisticated 7 Links to Awakening do
never arise apart from the appearance of a Well-Come-Well-Gone One,
an Arahant, a Perfectly Self-Enlightened Buddha! They never emerge outside
the discipline of a thus Happy and Successful One! Which seven?

1: The Awareness Link to Awakening: sati-sambojjhanga.
2: The Investigation Link to Awakening: dhammavicaya-sambojjhanga.
3: The Energy Link to Awakening: viriya-sambojjhanga.
4: The Joy Link to Awakening: pīti-sambojjhanga.
5: The Tranquillity Link to Awakening: passaddhi-sambojjhanga.
6: The Concentration Link to Awakening: samādhi-sambojjhanga.
7: The Equanimity Link to Awakening: upekkhā-sambojjhanga.

These uniquely advanced, delicate and intricate Seven Factors of Awakening
do never emerge other than after the arrival of a Tathāgata, an Arahat,
a Perfectly Self-Enlightened SammāsamBuddha! They never emerge outside
the teaching and discipline of a Fortunate One...
