  • 2. 1. Whole picture of sufferings There is no doubt that nobody wants suffering and everyone wants happiness. However, everyone is creating causes of sufferings unconsciously by oneself. Cause of suffering is the disturbing mind. Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

Among disturbing mind, there are self-centered mind (ex. attachment (obsession), greed, arrogance) and destructive emotions (ex. anger, hatred, fear, jealousy, sorrow). And the cause of disturbing mind is self-grasping which arises from ignorance of the ultimate truth of interdependence.
  • 3. 2. Whole picture of happiness If you really want to be happy, you must at least stop creating the cause of sufferings. Then, you need to be able to create the cause of happiness intentionally as much as possible. For that, the best method is to master the wisdom Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

For that, the best method is to master the wisdom of understanding the ultimate truth of interdependence. And the other method is to be convinced of the law of causality or the effects of the practice of compassion, through your own experience. If you can do it, you will automatically practice compassion, and everything will begin to rotate positively.
  • 4. 3. How to generate Compassion Compassion is what makes our lives meaningful. Compassion prevents us from creating the cause of sufferings and enables us to create the cause of happiness intentionally. Concrete methods to generate compassion are as follows: 1. to master the wisdom of understanding the ultimate Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

  • 5. 4. Reason Compassion, namely care for the happiness of others, is the top most important Reason. In other words, Reason means Universal Moral Ethics. I think there are various Reason but we can broadly divide into two major categories as follows: 1. Reason which controls disturbing mind (Self-protection purposes): Patience, Mercy, Tolerance, Forgiveness, Self-discipline, Generosity Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

Patience, Mercy, Tolerance, Forgiveness, Self-discipline, Generosity ⇒ Effect to protect Compassion and maintain Calm mind 2. Reason which generate Calm mind (Altruism purposes): Compassion, Warm-heart, Gentleness, Kindness, Care, Respect, Appreciation, Humility, Self-confidence, Sincerity, Honesty, Trust, Empathy ⇒ Effect to achieve mental and physical good health and a holistic view, through Calm mind
  • 6. 5. Path to Enlightenment (1) If we gain the ability to control anger and attachment (obsession) through reason which controls disturbing mind, we have mastered methods to overcome sufferings. And if we gain the ability to maintain the inner peace through reason Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

All rights reserved. gain the ability to maintain the inner peace through reason which generates calm mind, we have obtained tickets for a meaningful and happy life by achieving mental and physical good health and seeing the reality. However at this stage, we have not closed all files of our previous negative actions printed in consciousness yet.
  • 7. 6. Path to Enlightenment (2) Therefore, disturbing mind will continue to arise, so we will need to continue to overcome sufferings until we will close all the previous negative files completely. If we create more forceful positive actions than the impact of previous Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

The final stage of closing all the previous negative files completely is the ultimate enlightenment, and sources of sufferings and the need for reincarnation will be both eliminated.
  • 8. 7. Proof of Enlightenment Only enlightened person can prove the enlightenment. Therefore, in order to prove our enlightenment, we need to find out an enlightened person around us, or we need to guide a person of high potential to the enlightenment if we can't find out an enlightened person. Buddha also seems to have had a hard time to prove his enlightenment and he chose Copyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, HitoshiCopyright © 2013, Hitoshi TsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyamaTsuchiyama.

Then Buddha succeeded in letting them attain enlightenment one after another and got their supports as his disciples for his preaching mission. Is there anyone who has attained enlightenment or has a high potential for the enlightenment?
