Permanent and Persistent
“ A corporeal phenomenon, a feeling, a perception, a mental formation, a consciousness, which is permanent and persistent, eternal and not subject to change, such a thing the wise men in this world do not recognize; and I also say that there is no such thing.”
(Siddhārtha Gautama (Buddha Sakyamuni) – founder of Buddhism, 563 – 483 B.C)
This man was washing near Assi Ghat, in Varanasi (Benaras).
The same day it was written in the newspapers that from now it was forbidden to use soap along the Ganges in order to lower polution’s intensity.
It might take a long time until people start to change their behavior there…
