Re: The Buddha's teaching on the Here and Now

Living in the wilderness, staying peaceful, remaining chaste, eating just one meal a day: why are their faces so bright & serene? [The Buddha:] They don't sorrow over the past, don't long for the future. They survive on the present. That's why their faces are bright & serene. From longing f...

Re: Where does the hapiness come from?

The unconditioned mind.

Their total stilling is bliss.
