As it is

Postby LonesomeYogurt » Mon Apr 30, 2012 5:06 pm

In the suttas there are many times where the Buddha instructs people to see things "as they are." How would you say "see reality as it is" or just "as it is" in Pali?

Thanks!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Why don't you give us a specific sutta and then we can show you exactly how we figured it out. With the resources available now a days, it's easy to learn how to answer these questions...

You're probably looking for "yathā-bhūta".
