Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha: The Path to Freedom
What is the Buddha’s teaching really? What we’re really talking about is love. We’re talking about kindness and compassion, and about how to remove and release the grasping of duality. This isn’t only taught in Buddhism. The nature isn’t dominated by any one tradition. The nature is free, open, and relaxed.
The Buddha simply pointed out the way the nature is. This is what the gracious teacher Buddha taught and what he practiced. His actions followed his words. He was humble and simple, and walked with bare feet, holding an alms bowl, picking up his own food along with his students.
The Buddha loved all living beings like his only child. Love and compassion have no boundaries. We need to reactivate these beautiful qualities within ourselves. This will make our lives meaningful. We will be happy, peaceful, and joyful in this life, and we will leave this life with joy, peace, and happiness. We will also leave a good legacy and example for our family members, friends, neighbors, and for everyone we’re connected with.

“Buddha Shakyamuni taught that there are infinite world systems containing an infinite number of sentient beings. Therefore, there are also countless emanations of enlightened beings to help with their awakening. There are thirty-six other world systems that are near our own. Each one has a different emanation of Guru Padmasambhava. We will tell you about one of these worlds.
To the east of here is a world where the concept of poverty does not even exist. Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava both emanated there to give Sutra and Vajrayana teachings. The people in that world were so strong and wealthy, it was only through the teachings that they learned about poverty and imbalances like the ones we have on earth. Upon hearing of this they thought, “Oh, what a wonderful place! If only it was like that here, we could practice generosity and serve others. There is something very special in the acts of giving and receiving. It would be nice if we had that kind of situation in our world.” This is an example of the influence of Guru Padmasambhava on beings in one of the thirty-six nearby worlds.”
