The Load
or
The Abyss
or
The Fragile

The Five Fuel-Piles

The form fuel-pile,
the sense-experience fuel-pile,
the perception fuel-pile,
the own-making fuel-pile,
the consciousness fuel-pile.

This is called The Load, or The Abyss or the Fragile

The Load Bearer

That man called So-and-So,
constructed from form, sense-experience, perception, own-making and consciousness,
of such and such a clan.

Grabbing Hold of The Load
or
The Root of the Abyss

That thirst leading to further existence,
together with delight and lust
finding delight now here, now there —
that is:
thirst for sensual pleasure,
thirst for existence,
thirst for non-exisence
arising from form, sense-experience, perception, own-making and consciousness,.

The Enjoyment to be Had from the Load

The pleasure and ease which may arise
from form, sense-experience, perception, own-making and consciousness.

The Impoverished Nature of the Load

The instability, pain and turn of events
connected with form, sense-experience, perception, own-making and consciousness.

Dumping The Load
The Termination of The Load
or
Free from the Abyss,
or
The Unfragile

The complete dispassionate ending of,
the giving up,
the release from,
the annihilation of that thirst
for form, sense-experience, perception, own-making and consciousness.
