I am not stating here that there is no such thing as final liberation; of course there is, and that is also possible in this lifetime. But if you decide now, ‘I am going to find final liberation. Like the Buddha I’m going to go sit under that tree tonight and I won’t get up until I’m an arahant,’ well, you’ll see how many hours of mosquitoes and dew and so forth you can tolerate joyfully and with an open heart before you finally head indoors. Remember, the Buddha had a great preparation for that night. You are here preparing.
