What’s Buddhism got to do with it?
Buddhism is a rich and varied tradition, but its most basic insights are simple, practical, and helpful. The Buddhist path offers many ways of enabling us to open up and experience our relationships with others in fresh ways. Buddhist teachings suggest that often this involves letting go of complicated mental patterns that have been holding us back.
Buddhism also speaks of kleshas, the negative qualities of the mind. As the highly respected Zen teacher Mu Soeng says, “A very human experience, regardless of who we are, is to suffer because we have negative qualities in the mind. We have anger, we have frustration. It’s the purification of these negative qualities in the mind that is the basic building block of Buddhist thought.”
In relationships, sometimes this takes the form of blaming others or putting them in the wrong. Many Buddhist teachings suggest that when we do this, we’re really doing it to ourselves. As the well-known Buddhist teacher and author Pema Chödrön puts it, “It’s difficult to hear that what we rejected out there, is what we reject in ourselves, and what we reject in ourselves, is what we are going to reject out there. But that, in a nutshell, is how it works.”
Relationships are complicated and there are no silver bullets… but simple Buddhist practices can be a building block towards transforming relationships with people one has known for a long time — friends, family members, co-workers or with new people who are coming into our lives… .
Here at the BuddhistConnect, we hope you’ll find congenial people with whom you can form happy and long-lasting relationships of all kinds. We also hope that in this process, you’ll experience the quality of bodhicitta— of openness and compassion, that will bring abundant joy to yourself and others… . Whether you are casually curious about Buddhism or a devout practitioner, you’re sure to meet some truly fascinating people here.]]>
