Awakening to the Dharma

2024 April, 20. Awakening to the Dharma, Joseph Goldstein. In this essay, Goldstein explores the transformative impact of mindfulness and meditation. He emphasizes the Buddhist concept of Dhamma, relating it to truth and reality. He discusses the practice of Dhamma as a path to directly experiencing reality, without the filter of conceptual thinking. This leads to a recognition of selflessness and the impermanence of phenomena. Goldstein suggests meditation practice to connect deeply with the Dhamma, cultivating stillness and peace while abiding amongst the continuous change of mental and physical elements. He explores integrating these insights into daily life through meditation retreats and other spiritual practices. Click here for the article.
