[1][pts][than][nymo] I HEAR TELL:
Once upon a time, Bhagava, Gaya Head revisiting together with a thousand beggars.

There he addressed the beggars gathered round:

The All, Beggars, is In Flames!

What All, Beggars, is In Flames?

The Eye and Sights, Beggars, are In Flames!

The Ear and Sounds, Beggars, are In Flames!

The Nose and Scents, Beggars, are In Flames!

The Tongue and Tastes, The Body and Touches, and The Mind and Ideas, Beggars, are All In Flames!

Inflamed with What?

Inflamed with the Flames of Lust!

Inflamed with the Flames of Anger!

Inflamed with the Flames of Blindness!

Inflamed with the Flames of Birth!

Inflamed with the Flames of Aging, Sickness and Death!

Inflamed with the Flames of Grief and Lamentation!

Inflamed with the Flames of Pain and Misery!

Inflamed with the Flames of Despair!
