When the Buddha speaks of the end of dukkha,
he is not simply talking about being in a good mood.
The radical, uncompromising freedom of nibbana
is not dependent on conditions being favorable;
it’s not dependent on conditions at all.
This deeper freedom, the end of craving,
comes through a profound inner shift of understanding,
in which the strongly held view of self is purified
through the experience of what is unconditioned, unborn.
