Event description

Description

'The practice of the three higher trainings is the scientific method to attain the permanent cessation of suffering and its cause, self-grasping. This can be understood by the following analogy. When we cut a tree using a saw, the saw in turn depends upon our body. Training in higher moral discipline is like our body, training in higher concentration is like our hands, and training in higher wisdom is like the saw. By using these three together, we can cut the poisonous tree of our self-grasping ignorance, and automatically all other delusions – its branches – and all our sufferings and problems – its fruits – will cease completely. Then we will have attained the permanent cessation of the sufferings of this life and countless future lives. We will have solved all our human problems and accomplished the real meaning of our life.’
