Buddha Knowing the Way

He comprehended the secret of human suffering and teaches how to get rid of them. His answer is the middle path between hedonism and self -torture – and to this day amazes us with thoughtful accuracy.

Prince Siddhartha Gautama lived in those fabulous times that the legend will tell us more than history. Beauty wife gave birth to Vladyka Kapilavast in the north of India a wonderful boy. The sages found magic signs on the body of a newborn and predicted him a great future. But the father wanted for his son not greatness, but ordinary happiness. He protected him from worries and worries in the luxurious palace. However, secret anxiety did not leave the prince. He leaves the palace three times and sees in front of him at the beginning of the lame old man, then – the poor man exhausted by fever and finally – a funeral procession. The lesson is clear: how can you enjoy life if all of us expect old age, illness and death. But not everything is lost. Having left the palace for the fourth time, Siddhartha meets a poor hermit, whose face is beam unhealthy joy. Here it is, the path to salvation. At night, the prince runs from the palace, cuts out his long curls and becomes a vague ascetic. However, six years of the torture of the flesh do not give him spiritual joy, the reflection of which he saw on the face of a beggar. And then he realized that it was necessary to look for the average path between the two extremes – hedonism and self -torture. Having washed and eating rice, he sits down under the fig tree and goes into deep meditation, swearing that he will not get away until he reaches spiritual awakening. So Siddhartha Gautama becomes Buddha (awakened). This condition turned out to be so blessed that he was tempted to

Kumppanisi voi käyttää sitä ennen tunkeutumista sisälle tai jos se on valmis kaksinkertaiseen tunkeutumiseen. Tohtori Sendler sanoo: Apteekki Finland mies voi asettaa pienen vibraattorin tai elinvoimaisen pallon naisen peräaukossa. Se vahvistaa sensaatioita – lantion hajallaan oleva stimulaatio antaa sinun yhdistää kaikki erogeeniset alueet sisälle.”

stay in him forever, but compassion won to people, and the Buddha went to preach. Now Buddhism is a world religion, it not only conquered the East, but also carried away the West. That in distant teaching is close to modern man? Civilization offers us all new benefits, but not answers to eternal questions;They torment us no less than an ancient prince who lived in a golden cage.

Keys to understanding

Do not indulge in desires: they are barren

There are two truths – about the suffering and occurrence of suffering. The main cause of suffering is in the indefatigability of human desires. However, these desires do not lead to happiness. They are either unfulfilled, and this brings sadness, or they are fulfilled, and then we are convinced of the ephemerality of our happiness, and the fear of loss deprives him of meaning. But we continue to wish again and again, and it is this insatiable thirst that pushes us from one string of suffering to another.

Do not turn off the right path

There is an exit. There are two more truths – about the cessation of suffering and about the path that leads to this. Suffering will end when a person gets rid of eternal thirst, but the right path should be chosen for this. It begins with the correct knowledge, but you need to know a little – you must be convinced that you know. Conviction should be put into the correct speech – not to lie, not to talk in vain – and in the correct action. Do not steal, do not harm anyone, do not discount. This will lead to a truly Buddhist lifestyle, which is crowned by three steps of mental work: the effort of thought, attention and concentration. It is they who introduce deep meditation, which decisively changes the consciousness of a person and leads him to awakening.
