What is the mentality in the way to practice of realization?
Dear Buddhist friends,
What is the mentality in the way to practice of
"Practice" is like a journey of getting
known oneself. In the path of this journey, you would encounter and accomplish
many lessons and challenges. At the end, you had been through everything, and
then you would realize that you are enriched and fulfilled.
"Liberation" is when you realize your own self-esteem.
Therefore, "practice" does not metaphorize
that someone walks from A to B. In other words, it is a process of zooming in
from far away or that of walking towards the interior from the curriculum of a
Some Buddhist disciples would ignore good knowledge of
conversion of the Bodhisattva precepts in early years, and then devote

Through such exercise, you would find, "I am so
lucky that breathing is so important since oxygen we rely on is so easy to get
and abundant." At this moment, villa and sedan mean nothing to you anymore
because you realize that happiness is in between breath-in and -out process and
no other needs to pursuit.
Cherish what you have had and appreciate what you have
learned. It is part of "Dow," which is also the focus of your
