Looking For Dharma Looking For Dharma Presentation Transcript

  • Looking for Dharma By Ajahn Chah
  • The Dharma belongs to no one, it has no owner
  • It arises in the world when a world manifests, yet stand alone as the Truth.
  • It is always here, unmoving, limitless … … for all who seek it.
  • Like water underground, whoever digs a well finds it. Yet, whether or not you dig, it is always here, underlying all things.
  • In our search for Dharma, sometimes we search too far, we overreach, over looking the essence.
  • The Dharma is not out there … … to be gained by a long voyage viewed through a telescope.
  • It is right here, nearest to us, our true essence - "non self"
  • When we see this essence, we see that good, bad, pleasure, pain, light, dark, self, other … … are just mere empty phenomenon.
  • When we come to know this essence then detachment naturally arises. and understand their true nature
  • We learn to practice how "not to attain", and say "Nothing is me or mine, all is impermanent."
  • True Dharma, after all, has no going forward, no going backward, and no standing still.
  • It's not about looking for good or bad or anything at all. It's not about being anything.
  • But when you see happiness and displeasure arising and not follow either, then you've discovered true joy
  • This is the joy of true happiness, The true joy of the Buddha.
