• The thoughts of Lord Buddha

[Written systematically and posted by Nilesh Ashok Jadhav for the benefit of mankind.]

8 stages of overcoming delusion:
1. To become aware that the mind perceives external forms [through sensory organs only]. 2. To become aware that the mind perceives the body as a form external to itself. 3. To recognize that all forms are figments of the mind. 4. To pass beyond the concept of finite forms to the concept of infinite space.
5.

To pass beyond the concept of infinite space to the concept of infinite mind. To pass beyond the concept of infinite mind to the concept of nothingness.

6.

7. To pass beyond the concept of nothingness to the concept that concepts are nothing. 8. To pass beyond the concept that concepts are nothing to the cessation of concepts.
