The teachings of Buddhism, called the Dharma, tell us that to understand the hopelessness of samsara is to enter the path to nirvana, or liberation from suffering. This path carries us directly to the heart of samsara and teaching us to transform it into peace.

When we follow the Dharma, our self-concepts, desires, and negative habits themselves provide the energy that fuels our spiritual growth.

Every aspect of every situation becomes a process of training, learning, and understanding.

The teachings become a silent song – a thread running through every moment – leading us to greater knowledge and awakening.
