~ Luke 9:58
The title translates into "non-abiding liberation" and is a consequence of letting go of all views, leaving one in a kind of free fall.
If you want, imagine what it would be like, to have nothing to defend. Nothing at all.
|"Sell whatsoever thou hast"|
"Although the term "self" is caused to be known of, and although a teaching of "no self" is taught,
No "self" or any "nonself" whatsoever has been taught by the Buddhas.
The designable is ceased when/where the range of thought is ceased,
Nirvana is like phenomenality, unarisen and unstopping. [...]
Devoid of mental construction, without variation, this is the mark of thatness."
~ Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika, 18: 6-10
