Through sincerely practicing these teachings we can solve our daily problems such as the problems of anger, attachment, and ignorance. We will maintain a lasting peaceful mind so that we will be happy all the time. We will generate harmony and good relationships with our family, friends, and others so that we can help others experience happiness too. With these experiences we will make our human life very meaningful.
Advice from Atisha’s Heart
Of all the great Buddhist masters that lived in earlier times, one of the most highly regarded was Atisha. He was so serene and calm at all times, and imbued those around him with a similar stillness, that he came to be known simply as ‘Peace’ by those who spoke of him.
Towards the end of his life he shared from his heart the key practices he had relied on to find his enlightenment.
