Example text

The 'restraint of the senses' attempts to cut it off even before it has reached the second stage, and prevents the mind from becoming a playing field for everything and everybody. Although the sense-stimulus is bound to run its course, it cannot enter the mind or get 'underneath one's skin'. e. to my salvation and quest for Nirvana. As soon as anything is noticed, the adverting is at once smothered by disgust and aversion, and, instead of turning towards the object, one turns away from it to Nirvana.

For, as we saw, ultimately, as far as true reality is concerned, it is quite impossible to enter into a real relation with other individuals, for the simple reason that separate selves or individuals do not really exist' Friendliness, to some extent the equivalent of Christian 'love', j' is a virtue, but not the highest of all. Wisdom alone can se[ us free. It is noteworthy that 'friendliness' is not one of the steps of the holy eightfold Path, does not figure among the seven 'limbs of enlightenment', and is not reckoned as one of the five cardinal virtues s Although friendliness takes beings as they are not, it is nevertheless useful as an antidote to hate.

A pure sense-perception, of course, rarely exists entirely by itself, and usually it is embedded in all sorts of volition° and drives. On closer analysis it will be found that the 'dominance' of sense-perceptions stems as much from instincts, and from the skandha of impulses, as from the sense-organs themselves. In order to clarify this issue, at least three levels of the apperception of stimuli must be distinguished. Three kinds of 'sign' correspond—the sign as (t) an object of attention, as (x) a basis for recognition, and as (}) an occasion for entrancement.
