Real teacher Vs False teacher

We come across many teachers – some real, interested in our welfare, and some in their own. Buddha gives a nice simile to differentiate between these two categories of teachers.

Right way to look at sensuality

Buddha’s ‘No’ ‘No’ to sensuality confuses some people. Lot of questions get raised in their mind. “Can it ever be done?”, “What is wrong in going after sense pleasures?”, “Is the happiness derived from sense pleasures not worth it?”, "Is there something beyond these pleasures?",  and so on.

Have you ever tried living alone?

Many of us dread the idea of living alone, even for a day, let alone whole life. Loneliness scares us. We always want to be surrounded by people who are dear to us. At least we need to keep interacting with the world either through phone, TV or internet. Why is that so?

How essential is right way of living?

We often come across people who live a unwholesome life, but talk high about their spiritual achievements. There are many modern Gurus who live a lowly life, while preaching spirituality to others. They even say that Yama and Niyama of Yoga are not at all needed and one can straight away jump to meditation or ‘other limbs’ of Yoga. 

I have ridiculed them in my post ‘tail wagging the dog’. What does Buddha say about this attitude?

Deeper insights into body and Mind

In the previous post, we saw how Buddha explains a way of coming out of the association with our bodies. This is part of Vipassana or often called ‘Insight meditation’ talked about by Buddha. 

We are not just body. We have a mind too, and the Buddhists recognize that fact. Buddha says that we have to understand the reality of this mind too and come out of its association. That is the Vipassana of the mind.  How does one do that?
