【Mind intent on liberation 】– Root adversary of cyclic existence
When you understand the attributes of the appropriated aggregates, that would be the time you develop great disenchantment. Otherwise, what would we busy ourselves with all day long? We would be busy with this. But in reality, this is the root adversary of cyclic existence, the root adversary of cyclic existence! Hence the Buddha tells us time and again, that this thing is devoid of any merit, devoid of any merit! What is its only benefit? We take advantage of this for practice. Because of this, in order to practice, you are forced to eat, and to live somewhere. But what would you eat? You would go out for alms. You would eat just whatever given to fill your stomach. As for living, ah-ya, you can live anywhere, even a night under the tree would do. But what we have now is far beyond that, because we don't recognize this, so we are particular about all these all day long, particular about these all day long. Because we are particular about it, all the afflictions arise from this, all the afflictions arise from this!
