Without Clinging one is Liberated!
Bhadrāvudha once asked the
How can one release all clinging?
By dispelling all craving, thereby all clinging is also released,
causes clinging! Thus do absence of craving result in absence of
the Blessed One.
Bhadrāvudha, where-ever above, below, across, and also in
between: Whatever beings grasp and cling to in the world, by that
is they followed to death... Attaching to anything, means
attaching to death!
Therefore, knowing this, seeing people clinging even in panic to
the realm of
death, any aware & alert Bhikkhu would neither grasp, nor cling to
in the entire world. Seeing all those people, who habitually are
to many worldly things and thus clinging to death's realm, he
stills all craving.
By stilling all craving, all clinging is relinquished. No wanting
means no clutch!
