Happy wesakday

Seeking but not finding the housebuilder,
I have traveled through the round of countless births.
How painful is birth over and over again.
Oh housebuilder! You have now been caught!
You shall not build a house again.
Your rafters have been broken. Your ridgepole demolished.
The unconditioned consciousness has been attained
and every kind of craving has been destroyed.
-Dhammapada153,154

※この偈ではridgepole = avijjhā 無明です
