An End to Suffering

the unwholesome and the root of the unwholesome,

the wholesome and the root of the wholesome,

they entirely abandon the underlying tendency to attachment,

they abolish the underlying tendency to aversion,

they extirpate the underlying tendency to the view and conceit “I am,”

and by abandoning ignorance and arousing true knowledge

here and now they make an end of suffering.

In that way too noble disciples are of Right View,

their view is straight, they have perfect confidence in the Dharma,

and have arrived at this true Dharma.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Middle Length Discourses

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.
