The Dharma Wheeler

The Dharma Wheeler

“Before my enlightenment, oh monks, I set out seeking the danger in the world. Whatever danger there is in the world, that I have found. I have clearly seen with wisdom just how far the danger in the world extends.

I set out seeking an escape from the world. whatever escape there is from the world, that I have found. I have clearly seen with wisdom just how far the escape from the world extends.

If, monks, there were no gratification in the world, being would not become enamored with the world. But because there is gratification in the world, beings become enamored with it

If there were no danger in the world, beings would not become disenchanted with the world. but because there is danger in the world, beings become disenchanted with it.

If there were no escape from the world, beings could not escape from it. But as there is an escape from the world, beings can escape from it.”

Buddha, Pali Canon, AN 3:102,I 260
