It is the realization of impermanence that is called Buddhism
In the beginning it is ‘Buddhology’, not ‘mathematics’ that becomes an easily ready-made formula. For example, 2+2 makes 4. 2×3 forms 6. Or you are a good person, so you are to expercience only what is good and one who is good or something like that. Buddhism presents the reality of all impermanent things. “The permanent are the impermanent”. For example, the fact that you are a good man and like to cultivate mind development does not mean that you will have to encounter only what is good and one who is good. You may come up against a worse situation or even one whom you do not like. What will you do in order that you may not have too much trouble ? This is the problem for one who develops one’s mind in order to prove how much you understand “Buddhism”. But finally all kinds of science are the same. That is ,all kinds of things having been carefully considered come to be included in the ‘mind’ itself. So there is no need for all meditators to adhere to the problem anymore. So they do not have tension any longer, which is called according to the principle of ‘Buddhology’ as “to let go of all things”.
