ABC of Buddhism – Happy Vesak Day

 

All conditioned things are transient

Buddha taught the four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path

Cause-and-effect is what you sow you shall reap

Death is not the end; the cycle of Rebirth takes place

Enlightenment is awakening to the Truth

Faith in Doctrine, the Order, the Path and the Method

God does not control the destinies of all beings

Hell is a woeful state where beings atone for their sins

Ignorant does not know of things as they truly are

Jealousy leads to unhealthy rivalries and dangerous competitions

Knowledge acquired orally, by thought, by meditation and by contemplation

Loving kindness towards all beings to soften their hearts

Mindfulness contemplating the body, the feelings, the states of mind and the dhammas

Nibbana is non-conditioned, is eternal, desirable and happy

Origin of Life is inconceivable in the beginning of this Samsara

Purpose of Life is about understanding of oneself as one really is through cultivation

Quieten the mind through meditation

Rebirth in the human form is hard to come by

Strive on with diligence” were the last words of the Buddha

Tathagatas are only teachers who hath thus come and gone

Understand life-flux continues as long it is fed with ignorance and craving

Vinaya rules are meant as the way of life for its followers

Wheel of Life, the process of rebirth consist of twelve interdependent causes and effects

X-factor, Samadhi is one-pointedness of the mind through concentration

Yield not hearsay, tradition, rumours, and scriptures depend not on others but oneself

Zen is a form emphasizing value of meditation and intuition.

My Gift To All

Truth Is Simple

Mind Is Complex

Compassion and Universal Love Is Often Needed-in Everyday Living

Let us not lose our balance with Nature or go astray in our thoughts and actions

Life Is never really Ours No matter how hard we may try to hold on to it. Experience Living in the moment.

Take Care

With Metta
