Named Form

Any thing that has come into being is a named form. A conceptualized object.

To this extent only, Ananda,
is there birth,
disappearance and reappearance -
to this extent is there verbal expression -
to this extent is there getting to the root -
to this extent is there knowing -
to this extent is there scope
for discriminating and drawing distinctions -
to this extent is there this run'n-round
showing up as some sort of being 'this'
at some place of being 'at' -
that is to say:
only just as far as named-form with consciousness.
- DN 15 §22
