The Myth of Blind faith

Giving-Your-OpinionWe talk about blind faith in religion, but actual blind faith exists in our everyday world. What do we really trust? We trust our senses, our perceptions, our culture, our thoughts ―completely, one-pointedly, and blindly. We trust these more than we trust religion.

The idea of having blind faith in religion is totally a myth. The real blind faith exists in our worldly existence. We trust anything that is within the range of experiences of our mind, whether they are perceptual or conceptual.

―Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
