Then, on seeing the significance, the Fortunate One, in regards to this, spoke this utterance of joy:
Mendicants, there is that place where there is no earth, water, fire, nor air; no place consisting of the infinity of space, of the infinity of consciousness, of nothingness, nor of neither-perception-nor-non-perception; neither this world nor another world or both; neither sun or moon. Mendicants, here, i say there is no coming, no going, no staying, no passing away, nor re-arising. Without help, not existing, free from turmoil, unsupported. Just this, is the end of stress.
