in remembering the words of the Buddha on this auspicious day of enlightenment...

"All conditioned things are impermanent"
"All conditioned things are unsatisfactory"
"All things are not-self"
when one sees these with wisdom,
one turns away from suffering.
This is the path to purification.

(modified verses of 277-279, Dhammapada)

Anicca, Dukkha, and Anatta are the three characteristics of existence as expounded by the Enlightened One. Through experiential understanding and objective observation of conditional phenomena that arise and cease from moment to moment will we gain insight into the reality and profound nature of existence which are bound by impermanency, unsatisfactoriness and non-self.

Happy Vesak Day to all
