The 8 Aspects of Feeling ... !!!
These Eight Aspects of Feeling should be well Considered & Understood!!!
A certain Bhikkhu once asked the Blessed Buddha: Venerable Sir,
1: What is Feeling?
2: What is the cause of Feeling?
3: What is the way to emergence of Feeling?
4: What is the ceasing of Feeling?
5: What is the way to cease Feeling?
6: What is the satisfaction in Feeling?
7: What is the danger in Feeling?
8: What is the escape from Feeling?
There are, Bhikkhu, these three Feelings:Feeling. This is Feeling...
1: Pleasant Feeling, Painful Feeling, & Neither-painful-nor-pleasant
2: Sense Contact is the proximate cause of Feeling...
3: Craving is the way leading to the emergence of Feeling...
4: Ending of contact, ceases Feeling instantly...
5: This Noble Eightfold Way is the way to cease Feeling...
6: The delight and joy of Feeling: This is the satisfaction within Feeling...
7: That Feeling is impermanent, subject to change & suffering: This is the danger in Feeling...
8: The removal & elimination of desire and lust for Feeling: This is the escape from Feeling...
Running after pleasurable feeling like mad robots, beings come to pain & death again & again...
