What is the Fruit of the Noble Way?
The Blessed Buddha once said:
While alive, then he is untroubled, & when he dies too, then he is not worried!
A recluse who has seen the goal, lives undisturbed even in a sorrowful world...
Wherever he goes, there he is unafraid.. Wherever he sleeps, there he is unalarmed.
The nights and days does neither touch nor burn him. He sees nothing in this world
that is to be kept or lost. Therefore his mind dwells in goodwill and gentle kindness
towards all beings, until he falls asleep.
SN I 110
One who has attained the Dhamma has no task to do, as his task has been accomplished.
As long as he has not obtained a foothold, the swimmer must strive to his utmost,
but when he has found a place to rest his feet and gone up to dry land,
his striving is over because he has crossed to the further shore...
