The Vision of Dhamma Print E-mail

Introduction

Buddhism is essentially a path to inner freedom which centres upon the discipline of seeing. What lies at its core, beneath its sometimes bewildering profusion of forms and doctrines, is a liberative vision to be cultivated by an arduous yet meticulously methodical course of training. This vision, which gradually alters one’s most basic conceptions and attitudes, runs through every stage of the genuine Buddhist path, from the first glimmer of understanding which induces a person to enter the path right through to the indubitable knowledge of deliverance which consummates it. In the special terminology of the tradition it is called the vision of Dhamma: a penetrating insight into the nature of things as they really are independently of our grasping, wishful thinking and manipulative activity governed by self-serving ends.
