“Unshakable is the liberation of my mind” ~ Shakyamuni Buddha
Description: Ongoing series on basic Buddhism. The Third Noble Truth concerns the cessation of suffering. When Buddha gave his first sermon, he was sparing in his description of this Noble Truth in comparison to the three others, teaching that the cessation of suffering, also known as Nirvana, doesn’t cause or lead to anything. It is rather a release of all the causes that have always led to suffering. The monkey mind, constantly grasping ahold of one desire after another, is finally welcomed in, soothed and completely liberated – gone entirely.
