|Noble Eightfold Path|
|Buddhas point the way to freedom.|
- These are the Three Marks, which are also called the Three Characteristics of All Conditioned Existence. They are true of all phenomena, which arise, turn, and fall away and so are radically impermanent at every moment. They are utterly incapable for providing lasting satisfaction. And, most difficult to comprehend, they are utterly impersonal, without self, neither the parts or property or constituents of a self.
|The Path of Purification (Buddhaghosa)|
- (V. 283) Meaning: "Cut down the forest of lust, but do not mortify the body."
