Life is a miracle. If you have not known its mystery, that only shows that you do not know the technique for how to approach it

Morality is a social politics. It is diplomacy. And each child has to be brought up in such a way that he fits into the society, that's all. Because society is interested in efficient members. Society is not interested that you should attain to self-knowledge.

The society creates an ego because the ego can be controlled and manipulated. The self can never be controlled or manipulated. Nobody has ever heard of the society controlling a self - not possible

One man kills somebody - he is a murderer.

And the same man in wartime kills thousands - he becomes a great hero. The society is not bothered by a murder, but the murder should be committed for the society - then it is okay. The society doesn't bother about morality

The real can be known only through the false, so the ego is a must. One has to pass through it. It is a discipline. The real can be known only through the illusion. You cannot know the truth directly. First you have to know that which is not true. First you have to encounter the untrue. Through that encounter you become capable of knowing the truth. If you know the false as the false, truth will dawn upon you

The End of Suffering # 3

To end suffering, one must cut off greed , ignorance and desire . This means changing one's views and living in a more natural and peaceful way. It is like blowing out a candle. The flame of suffering is put out for good. Buddhists call the state in which all suffering is ended Nirvana. Nirvana is an everlasting state of great joy and peace. The Buddha said, "The extinction of desire is Nirvana." This is the ultimate goal in Buddhism. Everyone can realize it with the help of the Buddha's teachings. It can be experienced in this very life.

The Cause of Suffering # 2

The Buddha explained that people live in a sea of suffering because of desire , ignorance and greed or attachment. They are ignorant of the law of karma and are greedy for the wrong kind of pleasures. They do things that are harmful to their bodies and peace of mind, so they cannot be satisfied or enjoy life.

The Four Noble Truths:

Suffering # 1

Birth - When we are born, we cry.
Sickness - When we are sick, we are miserable.
Old age - When old, we will have aches and pains and find it hard to get around.
Death - We feel deep sorrow when someone dies and most fear our own death.

Other things we suffer from are:
- Being with those we dislike,
- Being apart from those we love,
- Not getting what we want.
- Getting what we want and then worrying about losing it is also suffering
