A Quantum of Wisdom

with visiting teacher

Kadam Peter Kurczynski



Reality is not "out there" separate from the mind.  Appearances are the nature of the mind and are inseparable from mind.  In this sense, the wisdom teachings of Buddhism find parallel in modern physics, in which quantum particles seem inextricably linked to the experiments that study them.  However, in the wisdom tradition, we learn that investigating the nature of reality gives us the freedom to choose happiness and peaceful states of mind over delusions and suffering.  By learning to meditate on wisdom, we can identify with our potential and solve our inner problems.
