Of Quotes, Reflection and The Dhamma 1

* "You are happy when you have found your life’s purpose and you are now working for it."
A Buddhist’s ultimate goal is Enlightenment ….. total liberation of the mind with no more greed, hatred and delusion. Are we setting our lives on the Path towards this Goal ? Do we devote some time in our busy lives to practise Dana and mental cultivation ( Bhavana ) ? How well do we keep our Precepts ?

*" Inner peace and happiness are the true ingredients of successful living."
True inner peace and happiness come from Dhamma practice and realization and not through non-stop pursuits of worldly possessions, power and fame. At the end of the day, in the final analysis, we would have lived successfully if we have honestly grown in our compassion and wisdom…… when we have cut lots of our attachment, aversion, anger and our ego.
With Metta,
