' The end of pain '...


The end of pain lies not in pleasure.

When you
realize that you are beyond both pain and
pleasure, aloof and unassailable, then the
pursuit of happiness ceases and the resultant
sorrow too.

For pain aims at pleasure and
pleasure ends in pain, relentlessly.



- Nisargadatta Maharaj
