Mind is the Cause of Confusion

Book coverFor the follower of the Buddhadharma, the teachings of Buddhism, there is a need for great emphasis on the practice of meditation. One must see the straightforward logic that mind is the cause of confusion and that by transcending confusion one attains the enlightened state. This can only take place through the practice of meditation. The Buddha himself experienced this, by working on his own mind; and what he learned has been handed down to us.

From “Mind: The Open Secret,” in The Sanity We Are Born With: A Buddhist Approach to Psychology, page 63.
