It has long been important for me to offer the purity of the teachings of the Buddha in a way that connects with our common sense and compassion as human beings, which allows for the natural blossoming of wisdom.
The clear message of the Buddha is that this holy life has as its end the unshakable deliverance of mind. (The Simile of the Heartwood, MN 29 and 30). This talk is about what is to be cultivated in our lives so that this deliverance is actualized. The cultivation of dana (generosity), sila (living a virtuous life), and bhavana (developing the mind through concentration and insight)….these three lead one securely in the direction of nibbana.
