The End of a Montain of Suffering (Sotapatti) 1

Being are bound to 31 planes of existence due to these three bonds:

Bo Leaf Sakkayaditthi - Belief in self.

Bo Leaf Vicikiccha - Doubt or uncertainty (e.g. reality; about the way things are, the Lord Buddha, the Dhamma (Buddhist) teachings, etc).

Bo Leaf Silabbata paramasa - Belief in (wrong) rites and rituals.

The one who is free from these three bonds is also free from hell re—birth and from a mountain of suffering (having gained stream—entry (sotapatti)). Now s/he only has to suffer as much as 4 stones worth of suffering more (having ended most of it due to stream—entry).

May all be happy and well!
