We’re done.

The last link in the chain of Transcendent Dependent Arising is Knowledge of Destruction of the Taints (asavvakkhaye nana).

Which basically means that not only does the calm and collected mind know that all things are impermanent, unable to satisfy deeply and are without an inherent existence that can be called a “self”….the mind knows that it knows!  So it naturally abandons grasping for things to be other than they are. There is no more trying to find lasting happiness is things that can not provide it.

The struggle is over.

The mind is free from the taints (obscuring factors) that caused the greediness, hatred and delusion.

The work is done.
