"I never hope to see you again!"

Funny scenario: only in a Buddhist context, can one say “I never hope to see you again!” and have it technically be a compliment and sign of solidarity when someone is on their deathbed.

Obviously I would never say this to someone dying.

But it was a funny thought that occurred to me a while ago.


yeah, like ‘get lost now, you needy fool’

At Savatthi. There the Blessed One said: "From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating & wandering on. A being who has not been your mother at one time in the past is not easy to find… A being who has not been your father… your brother… your sister… your son… your daughter at one time in the past is not easy to find.

Only if you know that they don’t want to be born again :slight_smile:

Majority of “Buddhists” these days don’t plan on attaining Nibbana in this lifetime.

A friend said to me once, “if I have any money I still owe you, any other debt, you better collect up now because you might never get a chance again.”
