liberation and the cessation of dukkha without development?
Development implies gradual progress, not sudden insight.
It also implies intermediate levels of realization of the
truths. We may rightly think about liberation and the
cessation of dukkha in general sense now, but that is no
realization. The buddha's teachings lead to knowledge,
comprehension, detachment, liberation, and nibbana.
Liberation is not yet possible as long as there is not
enough accumulation, but knowledge, comprehension, and
detachment are possible, albeit gradually.

nervous about the piano teacher, he is so sarcastical at times. No good to
be nervous about it. A safe feeling that whatever we experienced is
