Lions Roar : September 2016
1. Practice with the breathing until a certain level of concentration and calm is achieved. 2. Open the awareness to whatever arises in the mind–body process and see that it is all imperma- nent, unsatisfactory, and lacking an essential self. ♦ As quoted in Larry Rosenberg’s book Breath by Breath. AJAHN BUDDHADASA (1906–1993) was one of Thailand’s most influential Buddhist teachers. His books include Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree and Mindfulness with Breathing. This brief teaching of his is quoted in Larry Rosenberg’s book, Breath by Breath. THE THREE DOORS of liberation are emptiness, signlessness, and aimlessness. Contemplating these three profound truths can help liberate us from fear and suffering. They are our doorways to free- dom. Living mindfully and with concentration, we see a deeper reality and are able to witness impermanence without fear, anger, or despair. Emptiness Emptiness is not a philosophy; it is a description of reality. When we look into a beautiful chrys- anthemum, we see that everything in the cosmos is present in that flower—clouds, sunshine, soil, minerals, space, and time. The flower can’t exist by itself alone. Everything inside us and around us, and we ourselves, are only empty of one thing: a separate independent existence. Simple As 1, 2 AJAHN BUDDHADASA’s “Condensed Method” summarizes the Buddhist path in two steps. Three Doors to Liberation Mindfulness practice, says THICH NHAT HANH, opens these three doors to freedom. LION’S ROAR | SEPTEMBER 2016 57
