The story of Siddhartha's life is about becoming Buddha, being Buddha.
It is a story on how to live a life of wisdom, generosity, love and compassion. It is about embodying a spiritual practice that integrates all aspects of your life and starts right where you are.
It is about traversing the Mahayana path, a path of great wealth and wisdom. It is a path that does not separate your day-to-day life and your spiritual practice. Your life is your spiritual practice, the result is the path.
It is a path that has been traveled by men and women of all trades-
artists, scientists, physicians, educators and entrepreneurs, the rich and the poor-
it is the path of the bodhisattvas, the mahasiddhas.
lifeblood are the blessings that descend from an authentic,
uninterrupted practice lineage. These blessings take the form of realization and wisdom as they pass
from each generation to the next through continued guidance, clarification and support.
Siddhearta's story is about living a life of value and purpose, for yourself and for others.
It is your story.
You are Siddhearta.
Your path. Your practice.
Clarify your practice. Let your practice clarify you.
