The Fully Enlightened One
The Fully Enlightened One said that all he can do is teach us the Dharma, the path to liberation from suffering. It is up to us to put it into practiceâ€”he washes his hands of that responsibility!
When one’s intelligence, mind, faith and refuge are all fixed in the Supreme, then one becomes fully cleansed of misgivingsthrough complete knowledge and thus proceeds straight on the path of liberation. (5.17)

The truth of suffering is that we experience many different types of suffering. The three categories are: suffering of suffering-this refers to things such as headaches; suffering of change-this is related to the feeling of restlessness after being comfortable; and all-pervasive suffering that acts as the basis of the first two categories and is under the control of karma and the disturbing mind.
But those who fully worship the unmanifested, that which lies beyond the perception of the senses, the all-pervading, inconceivable, unchanging, fixed and immovable — the impersonal conception of the Absolute Truth — by controlling the varioussenses and being equally disposed to everyone, such persons, engaged in the welfare of all, at last achieve Me. (12.3-4)
