vertical line THE VISIBLE NIBBANA 
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, MasterGotama, 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 heplans for his own harm, for the harm of others, for the harm of both; and heexperiences in his mind suffering and grief.But when lust, hatred and delusion have been abandoned, he neither plans forhis own harm, nor for the harm of others, nor for the harm of both; and he doesnot experience in his mind suffering and grief. In this way, brahmin, Nibbana isdirectly 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, inthis way, brahmin, Nibbana is driectly visible, immediate, inviting one to comeand see, worthy of application, to be personally experienced by the wise."


From the "Anguttara Nikaya" of the Buddhatranslated by Nyanaponika & Bhikkhu Bodhi
