Scriptural

Highest blessings.

A mind unruffled by the vagaries of fortune, from sorrow freed, from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated — this is the greatest blessing.

Thanks to the mass media, the ancient message of Buddha had been made more accessible world wide.

In this manner, the message that our mind and it’s health plays an important role in our secular life had gained more prominence too.

If we look at this stanza, we can catch a glimpse of the optimal state of mental health, which is the goal of every Buddhist.

Imagine ourselves being freed from uncontrollable mental state that is triggered by environment and situation.

A mind that is sorrow freed means no more mental suffering. That is wonderful isn’t it?

from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated

I can only imagine a lightness and purity in being.

Therefore, if we possess all the above qualities, then it is a highest blessings.

My Buddhist name is Ratna Jamyang Puntsog. I first encountered Buddhism in this life when I was 12. Formally took ceremonial refuge in the triple gem when I was 19. I believe the different spiritual methods were taught by Buddha to suit various beings who each have their own unique characteristic. The various sects and practices that arose are just a naming convention invented by disciples out of communication necessity. Had read and studied different forms of Buddhism. Volunteered in Buddhist organization. Until it last, I hope to share my views on Buddhism and find like minded practitioners around the world. May we practice Buddha's instruction together and connect through cyber space!
