Meaning of IMPERMANENCE in English


(Sanskrit: anitya, Pali: anicca) This term refers to the Buddhist notion that all things of samsara are impermanent. Once created, they decay and pass away. Although this is particularly true for human illness and death, the idea refers to the nature of all things. It is one of the reasons for suffering and is considered one of the three marks of existence .
