Not knowing suffering,
Not knowing the origin of suffering,
Not knowing the cessation of suffering,
Not knowing the path leading to... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE UNUTTERABLE BARE BANANA
vertical line Posted on Jun.10.2008 @ 05:10PM EDT by ______

The bare banana being is detached from all images and cannot be spoken of - this is the paradox of the unutterable bare banana.  One single infinitesimal formless bare banana, from which nothing can be subtracted and to which nothing can be added.
