   :: Normally, when people meet each other, they would exchange about what and how they could consume there and here. In the decision if something would be worthy to dedicate ones time, the question "What do I get from it?", would suddenly arise. Often people bear such an attitude also in regard of a monastery of meditation center, but that is the wrong way to step into the practice. In this short evening talk the author explains how an attitude of giving and letting go - from the very beginning till the end of the path - is leading to joy and to another view of one self: "You could be of cause also a being which is not just consuming all the time."   :: Normally, when people meet each other, they would exchange about what and how they could consume there and here.

   :: The Buddha'​s second Noble Truth states that the cause of suffering is any kind of craving that stimulates becoming (bhava; the process by which we continually fabricate new states of mind, from moment to moment and lifetime to lifetime). Yet this Noble Truth also states that the desire for non-becoming is one of the three basic forms of craving. Thus the paradox: How can we attain the end of suffering if the desire to end it is itself a cause of suffering? In this book the author explores the Buddha'​s own resolution of this paradox: how, through the practice of jhāna, we can create a unique state of becoming whereby the mind does not add further fuel to its desires. Eventually, this intentionally fabricated state of becoming itself comes to an end, providing the long-sought opening to the Deathless. ​ [Not available in HTML]   :: The Buddha'​s second Noble Truth states that the cause of suffering is any kind of craving that stimulates becoming (bhava; the process by which we continually fabricate new states of mind, from moment to moment and lifetime to lifetime).

Thus the paradox: How can we attain the end of suffering if the desire to end it is itself a cause of suffering? In this book the author explores the Buddha'​s own resolution of this paradox: how, through the practice of jhāna, we can create a unique state of becoming whereby the mind does not add further fuel to its desires. Eventually, this intentionally fabricated state of becoming itself comes to an end, providing the long-sought opening to the Deathless. ​ [Not available in HTML]
