Buddha Dharma (སངས་རྒྱས་སྟན་པ་) is the third most influential faith in this world. Many westerner gets confuse with all the different forms of monks and appearance. They think Buddhism is a very confusing religion and very diverse. Yes is it very diverse and very confusing if you don’t have well learn, or some one who is intellectually Buddhist.
The question which initial the Buddhism
Meaning of Dharma with the quest, the greatest question is, is every one happy? Every single being wants to be happy. We do what we every single act in order to achieve happiness. From an elephant looking for shadow under the tree in the sunny days to a little mice making hole everywhere to make its own space in the house. If you clearly look every thing is either a suffering or the source of suffering. The happiness it self is a source of suffering. So the happiness we think we are getting from this world it self is a source of great suffering. but the very nature of longing to be happy is call Buddha Nature. It is a basic instincts which drives the desire to reach the enlightenment, the purest happiness, Sachi ananda.
The source of all the suffering
There is a source of for every things that happens, As every action has a consequences. The greatest source of all the suffering is the I. The idea of being yourself as an absolute being. The initiation of the quest in search of happiness it self begun with the Big I. every one thinks there are absolute being and there are permanent. When we accumulated the wealth or when we work to gain some wealth we work as if like we are to live forever. That is we cheat, hurt and kill beings for living.
The antidote, remove I
The antidote is to remove I and accept the interdependence nature of reality. We are all depend to each other. we are not absolute. we need other service and products for our survival. We can make all the things we consume. We live in this interconnected web of dependency. kings and lords are depend on the food and products produce by the farmer and other poor producers and the poor fellow depends on their warm and kindness. So if you want to be happy, remove I the ego, there is the peace in heart.
The act of compassion
Now we understand, we are all living in this interconnected world. Your little action could bring sorrow either or happiness to some other beings. Once indulge in non harming deeds and be compassionate to other, with understanding their suffering with your own sufferings. Take an example of a family, there is a father who think him self as the absolute authority of the family and does what ever he please. the effect would be, due to his drink habit bring financial issue to the family which leads to the children dropping off from the school. The father has to be compassion towards the child by putting his feet in the child’s shoe for he has been a child. If the child goes to schools regularly and become a good and capable person it of immense pleasure for the father too. If the father does all those things which would effect the child’s future. the child would be a very bad person and he will follow the foot step of the father into becoming person just like him. which will bring him the trouble at the end. The understanding the situation people may be facing we have to be compassionate to everyone.
The ultimate destination
The ultimate destination is to achieve the real happiness. To gain enlightenment, the every lasting bliss of happiness. The attainment liberation from the chain of attachment which bonded us to this Samsara which is full of suffering. Buddhahood is the stage where one has awaken from the ignorance of being absolute self and accumulated the Knowledge of interdependence. Tibet call the Sangyal.
