WHAT IS THE ALL?
Visitor:
The Buddha once taught the Bhikkhus about the All:

"I will teach you the All. Listen closely. What is the All? It is eye and visible object, ear and sound, nose and scent, tongue and taste, body and feelings, mind and ideas. This is the All.

If anyone says, "This All is not enough. I will claim another All," can it be done? The speaker might believe it can, but he will not be able to show another All."

[from "Samyutta Nikaya" translated by Anne Bancroft.]

The d.o.m.:
Thank you very much for the quote. This is what the dom has tried to speak of.

Just keep this All clear and pure is enough. This All does not need to be added anything else - absolutely nothing else - to IT, no exception. And IT should not be cut into little pieces and blow any little piece, make it as a balloon and forget the Whole.

Visitor & The d.o.m. 10/31/03
