Provenance, terms and conditons




"What engenders a person?
What does one have that runs around?
What rushes toward the wandering-on?
What does one have
as one’s support?"

The Buddha:

"Craving           engenders a person.
One’s mind           is what runs around.
A being           rushes toward the wandering-on.
Action           is one’s support."
