“The Truth”

budasThe various Buddhist views of reality are not competing with or refuting each other. 

They are indispensable at various times, and for different persons. They are necessary while helpful. 

If we grasp at them as “The Truth”, we lose the view, and become attached to a blind belief.

gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha 

OM, it is thus: Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone perfectly beyond, to enlightenment!

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.

    On hearing the teachings on the Noble Truths, a positive result can be that one becomes better person, friend, family member and neighbor. When one learns of the teachings on emptiness, a helpful development might be that one realizes, “I my self am the source of my misery,” and perhaps learns to let go a little (or a lot). When the teachings on Buddha Nature are revealed, we discover that absolute liberation is not only possible, it is likely.

    Sometimes the teachings guide the self, sometimes we are taught non-self, and sometimes we are shown True Self. These are not contradictory or paradoxical, and although we may learn these lessons at different times none ever cancels the others out.

    This holds as well for various schools and approaches, I believe.

    Jie-di, Jie-di,
    buo-luo tseng jie-di,
    bodhi svaha!
