great joy

All formations are impermanent.
They are subject to birth and death.
But remove the notions of birth and death,
and this silence is called great joy.

---classical buddhist gatha

thats indeed the whole teachigns of the buddha, and all other buddhas

Dear matthias,

I am seeing your post after a long gap.

Bhagavan Ramana has also said:  All that which appears [anew]
are impermanent.  That has to disappear also.  The Self or Atma
or Buddham is eternal, neither appearing nor disappearing.  Even
the men, worlds and the universes may appear and disappear.
But the Self is eternal, without creation, sustenance and dissolution.

Arunachala Siva.
