Ajahn Dhammasiha quotes from Udāna 3.74:
"Someone dependent has wavering.
Someone independent has no wavering.
If there is no wavering, there is stillness.
If there is stillness, there's no inclination.
If there is no inclination, there's no more coming and going.
If there is no more coming and going, there's no passing away and re-arising.
If there is no passing away and re-arising, there's no here nor beyond nor in-between.
This, just this, is the end of suffering."
This terse, profound and somewhat cryptic inspired utterance of the Buddha refers to the experience of Nibbāna. Ajahn Dhammasiha offers some reflections how we can use the statement as a pointer to guide our practice towards true independence, stability, calm and freedom from suffering.
