Example text

You might be able to make a connec­ tion toward enlightenment with a few meditation sessions, but you cannot expect very much to result from just this. M oral ethics is a real practice that we do twenty-four hours a day. Therefore, the root o f B uddha’s teachings is the morality o f the Vinaya. All of us, but especially those who have taken monastic vows, have to protect our moral ethics with utmost care. The eyes are the most sensitive organ in our body. If someone hits you on the back, you still close your eyes.

Look closely at their character. e p e o p l e may look nice, but inside they may harbor harmful and negative thoughts. Others may be unpleasant but will actually help a group flourish or help an individual thrive. So don’t jump to conclusions but instead take some time to get to know more. Trust yourself, and then slowly trust others. M ost of the time, it’s better to focus on what people do rather than on what they say.

So, we should clearly understand that attachment in any form invites suffering. By having this insight, we will utilize Dharma to purify attachment at all costs, never to increase it. Sometimes it is very painful to break this long-held habit; some­ times it brings fear. But if we understand samsara well, then we see how important it is to make an effort to cut attachment at the root.
