The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Steve Armstrong's Dharma Talks
Steve Armstrong
My biding motivation for the practice of teaching is to share my interest, my understanding and my confidence in the Buddha's way for a balanced and deeply happy life. Given the pace of our culture and the direction in which it is going, mindfulness is essential to sanity. Since my first vipassana retreat in 1975, I've experienced the wisdom of sanity, peace and freedom.

Habitual thoughts of "who I am!," "what I want!," and "what I believe!," often bring difficulty. Insight into impermanence overcomes these tenacious tendencies of thinking, revealing the subtle happiness of wisdom.

The Buddha said "There is no higher happiness than peace." We can glimpse this happiness when the obstructions of mind are progressively uprooted by accessing what are traditionally identified as the four stages of enlightenment.
