The Awakened One was once living at Savatthi in Jeta's Grove.
A deity called Rohitassa came to him late in the night, paid homage to him and asked:

"Lord, the world's end where one neither is born nor ages nor dies nor passes away nor reappears: is it possible to know or see or reach that by travelling there?"

"Friend, that there is a world's end where one neither is born nor ages nor dies nor passes away nor reappears, which is to be known or seen or reached by travelling there -- that I do not say. Yet I do not say that there is an end to dissatisfaction and sorrow without reaching the world's end."



Without contrast the image is blurred.
Looking at the background; the silence,
the vastness, the emptiness;
the foreground is no longer the same.
The void, the unlimited is real;
it is not separate from you.
Nothing to hold, nothing to keep.
Neither possessions, nor loved ones,
nor the body, nor the mind, nor the self.
Clinging is taken away.
Resisting is gone.
Holding is gone. Holding is gone.
Gone, gone, gone beyond.
Gone utterly beyond.
Awakening praised.
