What is your age friends?

“When there are words, there is the fetter of birth and death. When words do not exist, there is nirvāṇa. Those who have words have birth, death, arising and cessation; those who have no words have no birth, no death, no arising and no cessation.”

It is impossible to say as it is uncalculable.
I can't see the beginning of this Samsara.

40. I don’t care anymore. I’m 40.

The property of the cessation of feeling & perception is to be reached as a cessation attainment."[3]

You’ve earned it! If you ever live to be half the Buddha‘a age then you’re already half way done. Enjoy YOUR SELF! Even if that means complaining like a toddler. I do it too!!!

Life begins at 40.

I'm 65, sort of surprised to have made it this far (long story).
Buddha save me from new-agers!

I was very pleased to see there are many in this age bracket.
This will provide some assurance for the continuation of the Dhamma Wheel.
