    Question Who is a Master?

    Hi! I have been asked this a few times and found it difficult to find an answer! So I ask the forum, what qualifies someone as a Master? Specifically what qualifies someone as a Buddhist Master?

    You should not only aim at the destination but also enjoy the journey. You should not just celebrate the achievement but also cherish the effort.

    A Buddhist Master does everything with a mind that lets go.

    Everything .....including thoughts , words and deeds.

    And all the time.....Master of mind .

    A detached mind is desireless , no desire leads to no karma , no karma leads to no suffering.....there , You are a Buddha .

    I was laying in bed this morning and lately during the morning hours have i felt such bliss comming from within.

    I feel so clearly that things come and go as they should and everything is a blessing. The more i let go, the more i smile. I am slowly trying to get used to this since at the moment it feels too easy to be true.

    Yesterday when i was talking with a person that i usually feel uncomfortable with i realised that we are both communicating here in our own unique ways of expressing things, not more, not less. I felt that my peace of mind and smile from within and my acceptance of her as she was changed our communication from our usual trying to convince eachother of eachother views to a dance that we danced together.

    I was really glad when i read your post Siheng Damian, it shows me, and give me more confidence that i am on the right path. And that it might be this easy

    Thanks
