The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom

There is that condition where there is not earth, water, fire, or air; where there are not the spheres of infinite space, infinite consciousness, nothingness or the sphere of neither-consciousness-nor-unconsciousness; where there is not this world, the world beyond or both together, no sun and no moon; where there is no coming to birth, no going to death, no duration and hence no falling or arising. It is not something fixed, it does not move, it is based on nothing. This indeed is the end of suffering.
