Meditation Mondays: Overcoming Suffering

Resting Breath (Laurie Snyder, ©2011-present).

 

Just as heat displaces cold, light eliminates darkness. We will not overcome suffering just by making prayers or engaging in thoughtless meditation, but by understanding reality.

The third noble truth, cessation, refers to the elimination of suffering and the way to it is the path of the fourth noble truth.

The ultimate method to overcome ignorance is wisdom understanding reality.

– Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
