Five Freedoms

13227047_10207892683547891_5413001315463682774_nTo be free of sensual desire is like being relieved from debt;

to be free from aversion is like recovering from physical illness;

to be free from sloth and torpor is like being released from prison;

to be free from agitation, restlessness, and worry is like being liberated from slavery; and

to be free from doubt resembles crossing a dangerous desert safely.

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.
