In Samyutta Nikkaya 22:27 the Buddha speaks candidly about his meticulous and exhaustive investigation into the many enjoyable things about body and mind. He then sets out with equal determination and scrupulousness to uncover the drawbacks and perils of delicious experiences. And finally and most importantly, he discovers how to escape the allure of these dangerous pleasures. This talk focuses on saṅkhāras, on mental and emotional amusements and joys, that drive continued becoming.
