The teaching of the Buddha

Coming home can be an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. That’s o.k., but not enough. It is not meant to be selfish luxury refuge. More meaningful is when it evokes love and compassion for others as well as for ourself. This is not just a warm, accepting, safe place. Rather, it is call to action to work for the welfare of others. Getting attached to the bliss found in our home is a dead-end street. Using the bliss to serve others is the teaching of the Buddha.
