Dharmabyte: A Weak Spot in Reality

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 18 Nov, 2021 - 06:00

Maitreyabandhu reminds us that the Buddha was cautious to describe things that were best directly experienced. The Lakshanas are not a metaphysical description of reality. Impermanence, insubstantiality and suffering show us there is something wrong with our perception.

Dharmabyte: There Really Isn’t a Me

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 4 Nov, 2021 - 05:00

Locana offers an excellent introduction to the most subtle and complex part of the Buddha’s teaching on impermanence: that all things in conditioned existence are empty of any innate self-nature. Insubstantiality might never be really ‘simple’ to understand - but this is a good place to start.

Excerpted from the talk Anatta Made Simple, 2001.

Locana (Elizabeth English) is the author of ‘Vajrayogini: Her Visualization, Rituals, and Forms’.***
