On page 45 of his book "Small Boat, Great Mountain" Ajahn Amaro says:

But the Buddha’s response was brief and succinct. He replied, “The cessation of grasping is deathlessness.” That’s it.

ps all grasping occurs due to past activities/attachments, hence linked to self-identification.

Even in our daily activities we can observe that every thought arises due to the past, there really isn't such a thing as present mind (thus no future or past mind can be grasped) remarkable, this transient phantasy called "mind" Simply by not grasping at appearances, mind disappears with the scene. Simple yet difficult since the cessation of grasping is not an activity of mind, so not something we can "do"

Ah well old news, or sperm (birth) knowledge as I like to say. The space between heartbeats, ah. :cat:
