Going Forth

The arahant Ra.t.thapaala told King Koravya why he went forth from the home life into homelessness. He said that life in any world:

is unstable and is swept away;
has no shelter and no protector;
has nothing of its own, it has to leave everything and pass on; and
is incomplete, insatiate, and the slave of craving.
