Reflections for “Smells Like Nirvana”

by | Nov 13, 2023 | Blog

The post titled Smells Like Nirvana is now up on Buddhism for All. Angela from the team reflected on it, and invites you to do so too.

🌕 Angela’s Reflections:

Review the Buddha’s teaching on the Third Noble Truth, again, again, and again.

“Now this, monks, is the noble truth of the cessation of suffering: it is the remainderless fading away and cessation of that same craving, the giving up and relinquishing of it, freedom from it, nonreliance on it.” (Source: Saṃyutta Nikāya SN 56.13 Khandha Sutta)

🌱 Journal Reflection Prompts for You:

  • 📝 What is your current understanding of the Third Noble Truth of the cessation of suffering?

  • 📝 How is the teaching of nirvana applicable to your life? Why is it important? Why should you even care?
