Cosmic Loti ~ Buddha’s Scientific Solutions for Solving our Problems

OK yea, this is another name change. But I promise that once I find a name that suits then that’s it. Job done.

It’s like that girly thing of trying on all the clothes in your wardrobe before you find the right outfit to wear.

Or like Gen Dekyong said,

Focussing on Dharma is focussing on the solutions to our problems.”

Gen Dekyong

Not immediately obvious, even if you’re Buddhist.  We tend automatically to turn to worldly solutions first. Then when they don’t work, start applying some of Buddha’s advice.

What Buddha taught was practical advice on solving our problems. As Dekyong likes saying – scientific solutions for solving our problems.
The thing about science seems to be that you test different hypotheses for what works best in any given situation, and try them out as you go along.
It’s empirical hypothesis testing. Or trial and error.

Buddha did say for us to check his advice out. See if it works for us or not.
(Kinda’ like I’m doing with the site name? Find out what feels good, then use it…)
So we check out Buddha’s advice,  and as our experience of applying Dharma  increases, we realise how incredibly successful if can be.

Sooner or later, we realize that it could well be true. Focussing on Dharma really is focussing on the solutions to our problems. We might even start to apply those solutions on a regular basis. That’s when the the auto-pilot becomes a Buddhist. And that is when life really starts to get fun 🙂

nb.
Dharma
 – is Buddha’s teachings, and their subsequent inner realizations.
Dharma means ‘protection’. By practising Buddha’s teachings, we protect ourself from suffering and problems.
Dharma is Buddha’s personal advice to us all.
