Practical Instruction

Great Middle Way

11822554_10154120600702222_1480885713660270781_nWe often hear the Buddha’s brilliant summary of the Path: “Avoid harm. Do good. Purify the mind.”

This is eminently practical advice. At every moment, in every circumstance, if we can ask these questions, we will make swift progress on the Path:

  • What harmful thoughts, words, and deeds can I avoid right now?
  • How can I be of service to others this very moment?
  • How can I purify the wrong views of separation (self-grasping) and supremacy (self-cherishing) right now?
