Practical Instruction

11822554_10154120600702222_1480885713660270781_nWe often hear the Buddha’s brilliant summary of the Path: “Avoid harm. Do good. Purify the mind.”

This is eminently practical advice. At every moment, in every circumstance, if we can ask these questions, we will make swift progress on the Path:

  • What harmful thoughts, words, and deeds can I avoid right now?
  • How can I be of service to others this very moment?
  • How can I purify the wrong views of separation (self-grasping) and supremacy (self-cherishing) right now?

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.
