Exploring the Buddhist Path
The Buddha's path is a way of transforming our entire relationship to life. We begin by making a commitment to a life of non-harming, which brings about harmony in our outer relations.
Through meditation we establish a new relationship to inner tendencies such as desire, anger, and confusion. By seeing these states clearly as they are, we are no longer controlled by them.
As we find balance among the changing conditions of life, we see that wholesome qualities such as patience, generosity, and compassion emerge naturally.
Insight into the Dharma arises spontaneously. We discover that our essential nature is freedom and clarity, and that we need only rest in that nature.
