Morning Dharma Lecture & Discussion

You might think that Buddhism is only about meditation, reincarnation and a lot of lotus flowers.

Though they are all parts of it, Buddhist teachings are actually about the purpose of life. Did you know that???

So what is the "purpose of life?"

Well, first you have to know every human activity has a purpose behind it.

We study ---> in order to get a job.

We work ---> in order to earn money.

We need money ---> to live.

But why exactly do we live?

Hmmm... we must have some purpose to live too!

Everyone instinctively knows that human life is a very, very special gift. Yet we spend most of our entire lives figuring out just what to do with it. So how then do we justify the value of life? Are all lives worth the same? Why must we keep struggling to survive and not just commit suicide? To know all these answers, we must first learn what the real purpose is in living.

    We learned about the law of cause and effect which is the foundation of Buddhism. People want to know their destination, but many are in the dark what kind of system is working. Our destination is so mysterious. But once you have a full grasp of law of cause and effect, you can have a control of your fate. That's what the Sakyamuni Buddha taught 2600 years ago.
