[1][pts][wp][bd] At Savatthi.

[2][pts][wp][bd] There the Blessed One said:

[3][pts][wp][bd] "From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating and wandering on.

[4][pts][wp][bd] When you see someone who is happy and well-provided in life, you should conclude: 'We, too, have experienced just this sort of thing in the course of that long, long time.'

[5][pts][wp][bd] "Why is that?

From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating and wandering on.

[6][pts][wp][bd] Long have you thus experienced stress, experienced pain, experienced loss, swelling the cemeteries — enough to become disenchanted with all fabricated things, enough to become dispassionate, enough to be released."
