258. While journeying on in this saṁsāra, I was reborn in hell again and again. I was reborn in the hungry ghost world. I was reborn in the animal world. For a long time I suffered a lot.
259. From time to time I was reborn in the human world too. From time to time I was reborn in heaven as well. I was reborn in fine material and non-material brahma worlds. Time passed by being born in the neither-percipient nor impercipient world and in the impercipient world.
260. Now I know the arising of all formations is meaningless. All conditioned things are vulnerable to destruction. With developed wisdom I realised the true nature of all conditioned things that I considered to be mine. Establishing mindfulness well, I attained peaceful Nibbāna.
