Impermanence – k Sri Dhammananda

” the Buddha reminded us that all existing composite things are impermanence. With birth, there is death; with rise, there is dissolution; with meeting, there is separation. How can there be birth without death? How can there be emergence without dissolution? How can there be a meeting without separation? By declaring the law of impermanence or change, Buddha denies the existence of eternal substances. Matter and spirit are false abstractions that, in reality, are only mutable (Dhamma) factors that are connected and that arise in functional dependence on each other. ” k Sri Dhammananda
