A random short story for you to ponder.
Posted on Sep.11.2009 @ 10:04PM EDT by chontri

Once the brahmin Janussoni approached the Buddha... and spoke to him thus:

"It is said, Master Gotama, 'Nibbana is directly visible.' In what way, Master
Gotama, is Nibbana directly visible, immediate, inviting one to come and see,
worthy of application, to be personally experienced by the wise?"

"When, brahmin, a person is impassioned with lust...depraved through hatred...
bewildered through delusion, overwhelmed and infatuated by delusion, then he
plans for his own harm, for the harm of others, for the harm of both; and he
experiences in his mind suffering and grief.
But when lust, hatred and delusion have been abandoned, he neither plans for
his own harm, nor for the harm of others, nor for the harm of both; and he does
not experience in his mind suffering and grief. In this way, brahmin, Nibbana is
directly visible, immediate, inviting one to come and see, worthy of application,
to be personally experienced by the wise.
Since he experiences the complete destruction of lust,hatred, and delusion, in
this way, brahmin, Nibbana is driectly visible, immediate, inviting one to come
and see, worthy of application, to be personally experienced by the wise."

From the "Anguttara Nikaya" of the Buddha
translated by Nyanaponika & Bhikkhu Bodhi
