Beauty Is Illusion! - Macro Lily Flower N6373e

In Buddhist teachings, life is in essence suffering and pain. The suffering is ever lasting and the joy and pleasure is temporal and illusionary.

 

Looking for joy and pleasure is never part of the path to enlightenment. The final mission of enlightenment is to get away from cycle of rebirth or reincarnations i.e. Samsara.

 

We shall remember all the beauties we see in this world are illusions only, like this close up of lily in my neighborhood.

 

Have a peaceful Tuesday!
