“Be Here Now” ???

Floating_BuddhaLet go of the past,

let go of the future,

let go of the present,

and cross over to the farther shore of existence.

 

With mind wholly liberated,

you shall come no more to birth and death.

—Buddha, Dhammapada, Ch 24, v 348

 

Wherever there is ‘here’, there is ‘there’.

Whenever there is ‘now’, there is ‘then’.

“Be Here Now” is not the Buddha’s teaching.

It is a bumper sticker.

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.
