The Sixth Lesson

Cha Nama Kim? What is Six?

What six concepts, when seen to the root with penetrating knowledge, and understood to the broadest limits, such that their repellant nature is seen as it really is and one has released them in their entirety, can bring one to the uttermost freedom of detachment?

Salayatana — The Realm of the Senses

The Eye and Visible Objects
The Ear and Sounds
The Nose and Scents
The Tongue and Tastes
The Body and Touch
The Mind and Ideas

The

ALL

This, Beggars, is The All:

The Eye and Visible Objects

The Ear and Sounds

The Nose and Scents

The Tongue and Tastes

The Body and Touch

The Mind and Ideas

Any Beggar, Beggars, who came along saying:

'I will Show You Another All
Beyond This All!'

Would be Unable to Do So,
And Furthermore
Would Find Himself
Over the Abyss!

THE

AGHA!

[Say O God!, with intense fear such that you are not able to articulate the words.]

How Come?

Because to Point to Another All
Beyond This All
Would be Beyond His Scope,

That's How Come.

§

 

The All is in Pain

He who takes delight in the All, Beggars, takes Delight in Pain,

So I say

He who delights in Pain, Beggars, is not Free from Pain,

So I say

He who takes no delight in the All, Beggars, takes no delight in Pain,

So I say

He who takes no delight in Pain, Beggars, is Free From Pain,

So say I.
