The Buddhdharma invites us not to believe anything but to come see for ourselves: the practice transforms our lives and through practice we come to understand the power of this path firsthand. But knowing that the practice works is not the same as knowing how it works. This talk explores the truth of mystery in our practice and in our lives. It invites us to open to the mysteries of the universe as a portal to a deep faith and wisdom on the path.
