Just reading these Buddhist tenets makes me feel serene. Following these, however, I know will require herculean effort and infinite faith.
- Bao Yen Hsin: The willingness to accept, without complaining, suffering and unhappiness because you understand it is your own karma.
- Sui Yen Hsin: Understanding that all situations are the consequences of karmic causes, and therefore, you maintain equanimity in all circumstances, both negative and positive.
- Tsung Fa Hsin: Realizing through practice the essence of your Buddha Nature, which is equanimity.
