Theragāthā Verses of the Senior Monks Chapter of the Twos 2.32. Sivaka All houses are impermanent; Again and again, in all kinds of realms, I’ve searched for the house-builder— Rebirth again and again is suffering. I’ve seen you, house-builder! You won’t build a house again. All your rafters are broken, Your ridgepole is split. My mind is released from limits: It’ll fall apart in this very life.
