Understanding the World

The Buddha said: “When a person has thoroughly understood the world, from top to bottom, when there is nothing in the world that agitates her anymore, then she has become somebody who is free from confusion and fears and tremblings and the longings of desire. She has gone beyond getting old and beyond birth and death.”

-Sutta Nipata
