The post titled What is Dharma? Dharma is Not Banging Your Head Against the Wall is now up on Buddhism for All. Angela from the Buddhism.net team reflected on it, and invites you to do so too.
🌕 Angela’s Reflection:
We experience suffering, or a pervasive sense of underlying dissatisfaction in various aspects of our lives: 💰 wealth, 💪🏻 health, 💞 relationships, 🏆 career fulfilment & success, personal mastery & growth.
When we look deeply at suffering and the true nature of suffering, we can transcend suffering. We discover our purpose, awaken our potential and live our lives with greater joy, peace and freedom. This is the greatest gift from the Buddha to all of us.
