Free At Last!

The next link on the chain of Transcendent Dependent Arising is Emancipation (vimutti).

The mind has seen the truth (yathabhuta…) of the way things are (that everything is impermanent, incapable of satisfying at the deepest level, and empty of an inherent essence that can be called a “self”).

Then the illusion that the world is different than this can no longer be sustained (nibbida) and the relentless grasping after things and experiences (in an attempt to find lasting happiness from that which is fundamentally incapable of providing it) will naturally lose its appeal (virago)….and we are FREE! (vimutti)
