also face many obstacles while living those lives.
A chance to listen to the untainted Dhamma is also scarce.
The birth of a Supreme Buddha is scarcer.
(Dhammapadaya – Buddha Vagga)
The forest is beautiful. But the people who search for sensual pleasure do not like these forests. Arahants who have eradicated all defilements (Vītarāgī) are fond of these forests because they do not have any wish in finding sensual pleasures.
(Dhammapadaya – Arahanta Vagga)
A Bhikkhu will never decline from the Dhamma
if he is living his life according to the Dhamma,
embracing it, thinking about it,
and contemplating it.
Then the Bhikkhu frees himself from all defilements and attains the Arahantship by completing the Noble Eightfold Path. He realizes the Four Noble truths in three steps – Sattya Ñāna, Kruttya Ñāna, and Kruta Ñāna.
There is an amazing contentment within that Bhikkhu about the Dhamma preached by the Supreme Buddha. He also could attain the Nirvāna that holds the pleasure beyond all merits and demerits.

There’s no fear about death in me. There’s no special desire about living as well. I am letting go of this body by establishing mindfulness and wisdom very well.

People who carry water can carry whatever the amount of water they wish. Bow carpenters also can bend bows to their wish. Carpenters who work with wood can also bend those lumbers as they wish. Similarly, noble men can discipline themselves as to their wish.

the birth of the One Person is the rising of a great wisdom (Paññā). It is the rising of a great light; rising of the enlightenment; the rising of the six fold supreme Dhamma (Anuttarīya Dhamma); the witnessing of the four analytical knowledge (Siw Pilhisibhīyā Dhamma); the realization of the infinite elements (Dhātu); the realization of the various elements; the witnessing of the wisdom (Vijjā) and freedom (Vimukti); the witnessing of the Sōwān state; the witnessing of the Sakadāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Anāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Arahat state. Whose birth brings all these to life? It is the birth of the Tathāgata Arahat Sammā Sambuddha.
Dear Bhikkhus, the birth of this One Person is the rising of a great wisdom; the rising of a great light; the rising of the enlightenment. It is the rising of the six fold supreme Dhamma; the witnessing of the four analytical knowledge; the realization of the infinite elements; the realization of the various elements; the witnessing of the wisdom and freedom; the witnessing of the Sōwān state; the witnessing of the Sakadāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Anāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Arahat state.”
Meditation heals your human life more than by any other means. It also makes your life more meaningful. Practicing meditation is a remarkable way to develop your mind. It is our teacher, the Supreme Buddha, who first taught us the possibility of developing our minds. The Supreme Buddha developed His mind to the highest level first and showed it to us. Thus, the technique that is used to develop the mind is known as meditation.
