With perplexity of the heart, what to do?


Perplexity, what kind? At home, from work, or between a man and

a woman?

Time and again, Buddhism touches on liberation. It is about relinquishment;

it is about freedom from delusion, being as is. Don' t ever

allow emotions to intrude upon the immutable mind-nature, self-existing

fundamental pure mind. Turn to recitation of the sutra, repetition of

names of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas, retaining of the dharani, and

contemplation of images of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas. Returning

to the state of one mind unflustered, awaken, in the process, to perspectives

renewed and hence to the unraveling of perplexity.

The sure-win method is, somehow, letting go of myriad conditions. For

once mind and heart align, interference is no more.
