The Ultimate Remedy for Confusion

Book coverWe work hard to bring happiness and peace into our lives, but there is no way to achieve real peace through material goods alone. Perhaps we can accomplish a little artificial joy and happiness, but these don’t last long. Truly substantial and lasting happiness and peace can be established only by exercising our inner mind with the precious Dharma teachings. This is the purpose of our meditation practice, and this is what Jigten Sumgön taught. Mental afflictions and neuroses can be pacified only through the Dharma. Dharma is the ultimate remedy for confusion.
