September 15, 2020

“… In our right effort we are developing the capacity to work on the unwholesome …”

Description: Ongoing series on basic Buddhism. Right effort in practice, the sixth fold in the Noble Eightfold Path, consists in working to diminish unwholesome states of mind or being. Likewise, the practitioner should work to cultivate states of mind that promote the arisal of wholesome speech and action. Once they get a taste of the true Dharma, and the delusion of “I am” has been seen through, the causes of suffering subside, giving way to the ever-arising causes of wellbeing.

For the introduction to this basic Buddhism series, please visit Venus Twinkling.
