Dharma Talks By Late Phra Ajhan Yantra Amaro

Building up Confidence

To have good faith means to have confidence.
To have reverence means to trust.
Our lives need confidence in the Triple Gem;
Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha.
The Four Noble Truths.
This means, we need confidence in Dhamma,
The teachings of Lord Buddha:
Believing in the Way to do good,
In giving Dana, in observing the precepts,
In meditation,
In having courage to do good at all costs.
Sometimes we feel weary:
Our confidence withers and dies out of our Citta,
We should then make an effort to pay obeisance to
The Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.
Sit with a teacher,
Be near the knowing ones..the wise ones.
We may ask ourselves:
"What are we here for?
What are we doing?
Is there anything better we can do?"
