Provenance, terms and conditons




"What engenders a person?
What does one have that runs around?
What rushes toward the wandering-on?
From what is one not yet released?"

The Buddha:

"Craving           engenders a person.
One's mind           is what runs around.
A being           rushes toward the wandering-on.
From suffering           one’s not yet released."
