The Most Important Dialogue

10245567_757148934340491_4942097859831713377_n― What, Venerable Lord, is the rewarding advantage of morality?

― Freedom from regret, Ananda.

― And what is the advantage of freedom from regret?

― Joy that produces bliss, Ananda.

Bliss then generates happiness;

happiness enables concentration;

concentration facilitates vision and knowledge;

vision and knowledge bring disillusion and detachment;

and disillusion and detachment induce direct experience

of certain and complete mental release.

–Buddha Shakyamuni, Anguttara Agama

    Venerable Tashi,

    All great Dharma teachers are like beautiful flowers on the path. They impart the perfume of Wisdom & the fragrance of Generosity.

    I humbly & sincerely thank you for your Generosity.

    I have downloaded 7 or 8 of your recorded Dharma talks from the Awakening Heart website & listen to them frequently.

    You are truly a gifted Dharma teacher, I say this not to flatter but as a statement of fact!

    Your talks work at both levels, the simple & the deep. A sure signature of profound truth. This also allows you to nourish all practitioners from the beginner to the seasoned.

    I encourage all readers of your blog to download & listen to your talks.

    I understand you give a weekly Dharma talk to a local sangha group in the United States.

    Of course, your beautiful teachings have the potential to impart the Buddha Dharma to a worldwide sangha of practioners. I’m located in the U.K. & i’m sure you have already reached other members of the global family.

    I read on this blog that you intend to try & make available online, past & future Dharma talks. It would certainly be a raft that would rescue many sentient beings, a raft worth sending out into the sea of samsara.

    May all beings be Peaceful & enjoy the fruits of Peace. Bliss, Joy & Happiness.

    Om Shanti…
