Concluding Message: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham
8: The Stages of Ascent to Moksham:
Our total life is free movement on our part.
But there is a root within us that is weeping because of this bondage, due to which the soul itself suffers.
This is the bondage of the existence itself.
To believe that we are really existing is ignorance on our part.
The fact is that we are on a process of movement.
We have moved continuously from previous lives to the present life, and we shall move from this present life to future lives.
The movement is such that it is continuous, like the flow of a river.
Buddha’s wisdom recognised that bondage is the imagination that one truly exists in a state of stability.
We are pushed forward by the requirements of our future incarnation, and also pushed from behind by the actions that we performed in our previous lives.
We are propelled from both sides.
The previous life’s consequences urge us to move onward, and the possibilities of a future life pull us from the front.
