Never, Always

path2Samsara cannot be and will never be free from suffering.

That is the First Noble Truth, the truth of suffering.

However, it is always our duty to alleviate whatever suffering we encounter,

so that sentient beings have the opportunity to cultivate the Path

and permanently abandon the cycle of birth and death.

That is the purpose of any and all Dharma practices.

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.

    I have some friends in suffering state. I am wondering when does wholesome intervention from my view turn into “meddling” from their view. I want to help but I look VERY deeply before stepping forward. This posting is helpful to me in making a decision whether to offer a hand or wait and see. It is not easy to judge how/why anyone else suffers. They are not starving, they have a home, yet they are miserable. Who am I to judge the degree of their suffering? Please recommend other postings to read. cc
