The word Buddha means the Awakened One and we can all awaken to the reality of existence. The truth is not a secret that needs to be revealed to us by someone else. The Buddha said that it is imminent, timeless, and to be realized directly by oneself. The mind blinded by delusion does not see that truth, but it is possible to cultivate the path that allows us to penetrate through the veil of appearance and realize the truth of The Way Things Are. This is the path to freedom and peace. 2014.
