HOW DO WE APPLY BUDDHISM INTO OUR DAILY LIVES

Question:

How do we put to use what we have learned – to apply Buddhism into our daily lives and to live life as Buddhists?

Answer:

Whatever we encounter in our lives, we must always think, how should we react from the perspective of Buddhism.  Do not be hasty in making decisions to avoid committing any mistakes.  Think before you act. Think and act only if justifiable – your actions should complement your words.  How do we integrate Buddhist cultivation into our real life?

Number 1:  Be Calm

Number 2:  Contemplate

Number 3:  Speech

Calmness yields wisdom and contemplation makes every word spoken justifiable.
