The Buddha on Teaching the Dharma

1493250_603615973027122_351703871_nThe Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak step-by-step.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak explaining the right sequence.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak out of compassion.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak not for the purpose of material reward.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak without disparaging myself or others.’

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Anguttara Nikaya V.159, Udayi Sutra

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. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
