The Ground-Level and the Path: Developing our Candlelight-Like Wisdom
The book begins with a subtitle "Developing our candlelight-like wisdom." When we have a candle in a room where all the doors and windows are closed, we are able to see without any problem all the objects in there. If we open a window and allow a breeze to come in, the candle will flicker to the point of almost going out. The same is with our minds. When situation is calm and there are no external distractions, we are fine. However, when the winds of karma and delusion are activated, we tend to lose our ability to deal with the problems that arise. This candlelight like wisdom is what we must develop. We hope that by publishing this type of inspirational information that on the long run we will be able to develop scholars on equal standings with the great masters who have studied the exact same work and have realized their own internal capability to attain realization through knowledge. May virtue continue to expand.
