      Friends:
          What is the Cause of Release ?
       
      Morality causes right action.
      Right Action causes freedom from remorse.
      Freedom from regrets causes joy.
      Joy causes rapture.
      Rapture causes calm satisfaction.
      Calmness causes happiness.
      Happiness causes concentration.
      Concentration causes seeing & knowing reality.
      Vision & Knowledge of the real causes disgust.
      Disgust causes disillusion through understanding.
      Disillusion causes detachment, relinquishment & release.
      Release causes Freedom by breaking the clinging ...
      Release causes Peace by the stilling of craving ...
      Release causes Bliss by ending the suffering ...
       
      Release is thus the final product, profit &
      advantage of good & clever behaviour!
      Morality is thus the foundation of Freedom!
      Right conduct is therefore the origin of Bliss!
       
       
         What is then the Source of Gladness ?
       
      When being thus taught the true Saddhamma;
      When thus teaching the true Saddhamma;
      When thus reviewing the true Saddhamma;
      When thus reciting the true Saddhamma;
      When thus seeing signs of the true Saddhamma;
      the inspiration gained causes Gladness to arise !!!
      Gladness makes joyous rapture arise.
      Rapture satisfies mind until calm tranquility pervades.
      When truly calmed, a happy pleasure is experienced.
      Dwelling in Ease, mind is composed, focused & concentrated.
      Such stilled, fixed & anchored, yet effectively penetrating mind;
      Finds Determination ...
      Finds Will of Zeal ...
      Finds Enthusiastic Energy ...
      To eliminate mental bonds & defilements not yet fully destroyed ...
      To reach many yet unattained infinite depths of Peace ...
      To win the yet unsurpassed bliss of ultimate Freedom ...   
       
       
                                       Yeah !
