The Ultimate Teaching

11899767_1466030740388802_698338472824752701_nThe wise live by loving kindness.

They live by compassion and sympathetic joy

and in a constant state of equanimity towards cyclic existence.

By thus training in concentration, they reach enlightenment.

Having realized peace free of sorrow, awakening,

one sees the illness, ageing, and anguish of sentient beings.

Compassion for beings then dawns within

and the ultimate teaching is imparted.

―Buddha Shakyamuni, King of Samadhi Sutra

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.
