Dharmabyte: The Buddha's Decision to TeachOn Thu, 3 January, 2019 - 11:00
The Buddha realised full well how hard it was going to be to communicate what he had discovered to other people - to us. He knew that the grip of greed, hatred and delusion is very strong. He could imagine how vexatious it might be to teach. Fortunately for us, he could also see our potential. And so out of compassion he taught.
Parami explores this theme of the Buddha’s compassionate action and how ultimately it came from beyond self, beyond other - it emerged from his realisation of ‘Emptiness’.
