Our practice can be understood as living the eightfold path, moment by moment. As we practice ethical conduct, and cultivate our minds in meditation, we deepen in wisdom. This training in Sila, Samadhi and Panna helps to unravel the many layers of greed, aversion and delusion in our minds, leading us to freedom: the absence of greed, aversion and delusion.
In our meditation practice, we often view the wandering mind as something that we have to overcome in order to deepen in our practice. But we can actually investigate the wandering mind as a mental phenomenon, and learn a lot about the way our minds work, deepening in our practice through this very investigation.
