Together We Learn
Each moment in facilitating the class learning is an opportunity for my personal growth. I am pleased with every chance I get to revisit chapters in the Lamrim through class discussion. As I do this, I have a unique answer to every question that is put to me. Finding those answers helps me in acquiring new insight and affirmation on many topics, such as karma and its effects:
- Secure oneself in the human realm in next lifetime is more important than surpassing the apparent enjoyment & pleasures in cyclic existence （共下士者）
- Affirm that “I am the cause of my own suffering” rather than “you are the cause of my suffering” （业决定理）
- You learn with them, together we learn. However, to feel close and be connected to Buddhas & Bodhisattvas come from the individual. It’s a miracle – a tender gift to behold
May this sharing delight our excellent teachers.
