no beliefs

August 7, 2013

The fundamental aim of Buddhist practice is not belief; it’s enlightenment, the awakening that takes place when illusion has been overcome.

It may sound simple, but it’s probably the most difficult thing of all to achieve. It isn’t some kind of magical reward that someone can give you or that a strong belief will enable you to acquire.

The true path to awakening is genuine discernment; it’s the very opposite of belief.

~ Trinlyay Tulku Rinpoche
