Lokavipatti Sutta: All the Time we will not Win and Will not Loss


In Lokavipatti Sutta of Anguttara Nikaya, the Buddha said about 8 vicissitudes or conditions of life which spin our life and the world spins after these eight worldly conditions or vicissitudes of life are Gain- loss (Labha - alabha), Win – lost (jay- ajay), Censure- praise, (Ninda-prasamsa), Pleasure – pain (Sukkha-dukkha).

Just remember, all the time we will not win and will not lost. As a worldly human being, we all are affected with these 8 vicissitude of life which mentioned above. When one’s faced any of these conditions, should remain unshaken, balanced in mind, which is blessing said in Maha-Mangala sutta. If we lost our mind, then we will be big loser. For example if we got fight with mad dog, unethical who doesn’t have any morality. Then it will no different between the evil and good. Let win through goodness.

We should maintain our goodness all the time. We don’t have to lost our goodness because of other badness. We have to win their badness through our goodness which is blessing to all.

Remember all these conditions Gain/loss, status/disgrace, censure/praise, pleasure/pain in our life are inconstant, impermanent, subject to change. Those who are trying to backbit, rumour against good peoples will get their bad result.

In knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don't charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming & rebelling are scattered, gone to their end, do not exist. Knowing the dustless, sorrow-less state, he discerns rightly, end the suffering which is blessing.
