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 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?"
