Provenance, terms and conditons

 


 

[1][pts][bd][upal] "Monks, these seven perceptions, when developed and pursued, are of great fruit, of great benefit. They gain a footing in the Deathless, have the Deathless as their final end.

Which seven?

The perception of the unattractive,
the perception of death,
the perception of loathsomeness in food,
the perception of distaste for every world,
the perception of inconstancy,
the perception of stress in what is inconstant,
the perception of not-self in what is stressful.

"Monks, these seven perceptions,
when developed and pursued,
are of great fruit,
of great benefit.

They gain a footing in the Deathless,
have the Deathless as their final end."
