Description

To counter the misleading idea that Nibbāna is simply nothing, Ajahn Dhammasiha quotes the well known passage in Udāna 8.3: "There is, monks, an unborn, unbecome, uncreated,
unconditioned...".


He reminds us not to forget about this final goal of all our
practice, to overcome our anxiety about sickness and death by
remembering the garantee of the Buddha that the deathless exists, and can be realized by us.


We do not contemplate impermanence, death and suffering in order to induce a mindstate of resignation. Instead, we contemplate to free ourselves from death, pain and decay, by attaining the deathless, unconditioned element.
