“…the eight worldly conditions revolve around the world, and the world revolves around the eight worldly conditions.~ Buddha (numbered discourses #8.5 Worldly Conditions ~ Paṭhamalokadhamma Sutta)
Gain and loss, fame and disgrace, praise and blame, pleasure and pain.
These eight worldly conditions revolve around the world, and the world revolves around these eight worldly conditions.”
