Wisdom and compassion in action
Ultimately, the Buddhist teachings are directed towards the goal of enlightenment, but they are actually very practical and totally applicable to everything we do and to every situation in our lives.
How do we put the practice and teachings on meditation, mindfulness and awareness into action? Once we’ve generated bodhicitta for all sentient beings, how can we apply it in practical terms? How do interdependence and impermanence manifest in our work? How can we work together efficiently and care for each other at the same time? It is one thing to be able to apply the teachings in the practice itself yet entirely another to apply them in daily life, let alone recognize and overcome the habits, patterns and obscurations of our ordinary mind that block us from realizing our true nature.
