Buddha’s Words; Chapter 6 The Wise

We live in a materialistic world, self obsessed, constantly craving more, often “living” inside a fake reality of social media, computer games, television. Chapter 5 of the Dhammapada describes a wise person as someone who rejects all this having recognised it as a source of an unsatisfactory life.

The wise follow the Buddha’s teaching,

They see the teaching as a path for happiness,

They discipline themselves as moral beings,

They practise mindfulness and loving kindness,

The wise see the reality of suffering, impermanence and no-self.
