Thread: The Dhamma

    The Dhamma

    Hi everyone, The following was forwarded to me by a friend. I am unable to make much out of it. Can I have your comments? Rgds. Bradley

    The ‘Dhamma’ is ‘Dependent Origination’
    The creator of the elusive ‘self’
    Where in fact, there is nothing to be defined
    But just an empty process of energy reacting on energy
    It cannot be created nor can it be destroyed
    But it certainly can be neutralized
    And the way is the ‘Middle Way’
    Superficial religious practices are worthless to this ‘Way’
    Hence this ‘Way’ is beyond the comprehension of the ‘blind’
    Therefore, the ‘Dhamma’ will always remain a mystery
    To the world, as the Buddha said: “Steeped in ignorance”.

    I see what he or she is saying. It is ignorant habitual patterns of behavior, compounded, that create a sense of permanent self and further ignorance and delusion that keeps the cycle going. Not going to either extreme of belief or denial, "neutralizing" the habit of patterns, of becoming. It is very general, but all in all, sums it all up. Of course, words are part of the problem. You can only describe a superficial perception of dhamma with words. Dhamma in actuality cannot be contained with words and mere expression.
    Be well.

    Interesting :-)

    More refined and clearer than earlier posts you have made.

    Does your understanding affect the choices you make and how you live your life moment to moment?
