How do we overcome ignorance?

IMG_2350How do we overcome ignorance, by praying to the Buddha?

No, by following the path he showed.

As he said, “You are your own master.” The Buddha didn’t say, “I’m the Buddha, pray to me.”

He taught the Four Noble Truths; suffering, its cause, cessation, and the path to it.

He taught about lasting peace that can only be achieved through practice.

His whole teaching is based on the law of cause and effect; if you want change, create the causes.
