BUDDHIST WISDOM FOR OUR TIMES
There is a healthy, reasonable way of living, a simple philosophy that people mistake for a religion, which is a recipe for both world peace and individual sanity. It’s called Dharma, and it’s hardly new – the person who expressed it lived 2500 years ago. Dharma is the kind of wisdom that serves as a life support system for those of us who otherwise don’t get the point of modern, materialistic society.
Following the “Middle Path” can keep you from going crazy. It’s a trade-off. When you start dealing with the truth by stripping away your veneer of bad learning and misplaced priorities, you see just what a dismal world full of agony and suffering you inhabit.
Fortunately, realizing the truth has a way of setting you free, vaccinating you against the horrors of life, and showing you how to be basically happy, content, self-reliant, and free from fear.
WHAT IS DHARMA?
Dharma is the essential knowledge of Buddhism, as expressed by the Buddha 2500 years ago. It consists of a set of universal truths about the human condition (The Four Noble Truths), a list of things to avoid doing (The Five Precepts), and instructions on how to live a perfect life (The Noble Eightfold Path). The Path addresses morality, mental discipline, and wisdom.
BUDDHIST WISDOM FOR INNER PEACE AND SOCIAL HARMONY
Dharma is the Art of Living, Way of Life, The Reality, or The Truth, combining knowledge and practice that empowers you to control your life, maintain sanity, and live harmoniously within society. Students of Dharma appreciate nature and develop compassion for all living beings, which is the source of happiness.
People live happy lives when they know how happiness is created.
Mindfulness is a skill to be practiced and mastered. Vipassana meditation develops mindfulness and provides personal insight that enables people to deal rationally with their feelings and life circumstances.
