The Buddhist teachings suggest we have a mind that is luminous and precious (like a diamond) and that our happiness depends on us cultivating this jewel within. Drawing on the Buddha’s sutras, I show how finding this jewel of our mind requires effort, patience and a willingness to go against the flow of what society calls happiness.
introduction to Buddhism
My journey into Buddhism has been an unexpected and exciting one. If someone had told me when I was fourteen what I was going to do before my 30th birthday, I would have called them insane. But at the same time I would have sat in wonder at the adventures I was going to have and I would have been unimaginably excited about the years following my 27th birthday. In this brief video, which was originally created to promote my YouTube channel, I provide you with a snippet of my life and what led me into Buddhism.
