Falling Upwards ... !!!
Inclining, sloping, bending & falling towards Enlightenment!
The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, just as all the rafters in a peaked house slant, slope, tilt, tend, veer &
incline towards the roof top, even so, when any bhikkhu begins to train, develop &
cultivate the Seven Links to Awakening, then he indeed slants, slopes, tilts, tends,
inclines & veers towards Nibbāna... Why and how is this convergence so?
When, friends, a Bhikkhu trains, develops, expands, consolidates & refines:
1: The Awareness Link to Awakening.
2: The Investigation Link to Awakening.
3: The Energy Link to Awakening.
4: The Joy Link to Awakening.
5: The Tranquillity to Awakening.
6: The Concentration Link to Awakening.
7: The Equanimity Link to Awakening.
based upon seclusion, disillusion, and ceasing, maturing & culminating in release,
then these Seven Links to Awakening and the repeated training of them, in & by
themselves, make him slant, slope, tilt, tend, veer and incline towards Nibbāna...
