Samsara & Nirvana

"Happy is one who knows Samsara and Nirvana are not two".

-Milarepa, "Drinking the Mountain Stream"

As long as we see Samsara and Nirvana as dual conflicting opposites,
we will, if we are in Samsara too deep,
have attachment to Samsara and aversion for Nirvana.
If we yearn for Nirvana too much,
we will have attachment to Nirvana and aversion for Samsara.
And this duality of attachment and aversion is Samsara itself-
they have to be dissolved for Nirvana to be attained.
And when they are dissolved in Nirvana,
what conflict will Samsara have with Nirvana anymore? JoinMailingList4LatestUpdates/Reply
