The Whole Path

Opening 2018 with a talk on the “Whole Path” of Buddhist purification and liberation. I used the verse that is often chanted as a summary of the path (Dhammapada 183) as the basis.

sabba-pāpassa akaranam kusalassupa-sampadā
sacitta-pariyo-dapanam etam buddhāna-sāsanam

Do no harmful actions,
do what’s skillful,
purify your mind.
This is the legacy of the Buddha.

Meditation: Delight, deepening the breath, intimacy
