Nothing can land there

The Buddha’s instructions to his son, Rahula, who was aged seven:

Rahula, develop your meditation so that it is like space,

for when you develop meditation that is like space,

the agreeable and disagreeable contacts that arise will not invade your mind and remain.

Just as space is not established anywhere, so too, Rahula, develop meditation that is like space.
