So what do you think, Ven. Huifeng? Is there a hope that is free of expectation?

Dear friends,

when it is like that, that hope is not taught, not taught to grasp, not praised by enlighten beings, please let me ask one more time,
why is hope not taught, not taught to grasp on, not praised by enlighten beings?


It seems, Hanzze, that you are overlooking or ignoring some of the posts above, when you say "when it is like that, that hope is not taught ... why is hope not taught...?"


Dear Huifeng,

it is still not clear now, why hope is not taught, not taught to grasp on, not praised by enlighten beings?
Maybe it helps, when we thing about its qualities, its origin and its effects.
So where does it origin, what is its cause?
What is its quality when it arises?
What is its effect?
