Provenance, terms and conditons

 


 

[1][pts][bodh][olds] At Savatthi.

[2][pts][bodh][olds] There the Blessed One said:

[3][pts][bodh][olds] "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][bodh][olds] 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][bodh][olds] "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][bodh][olds] 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."
