Heart Wisdom – Ep. 88 – Realizing, Overcoming, Liberating
As you practice in Dharma you get a sense that the allowing of things is what brings freedom. In this episode, we begin with a reflection on the paradoxical course of awakening laid out by The Buddha in the Satipatthana Sutta. We look at the path of liberation offered in The Buddha’s teachings and the process of purification that comes with mindfulness practice.
As my teacher Ajahn Chah said, “People come here looking for The Buddha. They bow, they take refuge in The Buddha – but what is The Buddha? When we see with the eye of wisdom, we know that The Buddha is timeless, unborn, unrelated to any physical body or history or image. The Buddha is the ground of all being, the realization of the truth of the unmoving mind.”
