Liberation. Period. | December 11, 2014

Freedom from desires and passions is not the same as the attainment of 'liberation by mind' and 'liberation by insight' which alone can cut the root of dependent origination: ignorance. Buddhism was not conceived as a means to become liberated from desire, but as a means to become liberated.

- Stuart Smithers, "Freedom's Just Another Word"
