The real meaning of the Dharma…
must be directly experienced.

~ Siddhi Nagarjuna

Personal experience is…
the foundation of Buddhist philosophy.
In this sense, Buddhism is radical empiricism or experimentalism.

~ D.T. Suzuki

The Truth itself…
can only be self-realised
within one’s own deepest consciousness.

~ The Buddha

    The problem with us (human beings) is that we do not want to try. Sometimes we think that our views are correct and do not wish to try something that contradicts our views. At other times, even if we agree that we should try it, we underestimate our own capability and feel that it is not possible for us to do it. Human beings really think too much. Why not just do it?
