Heart of Wisdom
March 4 – April 23
In his wisdom teachings, Buddha explained the relationship between our mind and our world. When we study and meditate on these teachings we can overcome confusion, make practical changes in life and remove obstacles to realizing our full potential.
James Lane is a longtime Buddhist and student on the Teacher Training Program. James is widely appreciated for his deep faith and the strong effort he applies to his spiritual practice.
“Sometimes my delusions are strong and sometimes they are weak. This indicates that they are impermanent. If they can be reduced temporarily, they can be eradicated altogether; so why can I not attain liberation? Buddha said that everyone has Buddha nature. If I rely sincerely upon my Spiritual Guide and practice sincerely what he or she teaches me there is no reason why I cannot attain enlightenment. With my mind empowered by my Guru’s blessings I can accomplish anything.” - How to Understand the Mind
