(An excerpt from Bhante Kusala’s book: Dhamma in Plain English).
I don’t know what Buddhism is:
Almost every person in the west has heard about the term Buddhism. For some people, Buddhism is just another religion. For some others, Buddhism is a way of life. The latter includes daily meditation practice and a simple lifestyle that harmonizes with one’s own body and mind. The Buddha says that taking care of oneself benefits to others and vice versa. The teachings of the Buddha are for the wise ones to awaken into the blissful nature in the mind and lead a harmonious life.
~Wisdom from the Buddha~
They do not lament over the past,
they are not anxious for what is to come,
they maintain themselves in the present,
thus their complexion is serene. (Dhammapada)
