Buddha's teachings are so simple and straightforward. If you find them complicated, it is only because you have made them so. You may think, I have a Ph.D. and have amassed all this knowledge, yet I still can't figure out how to begin practicing Dharma. The remedy is to take a good look at your own mind.Lama Thubten Yeshe, in "Wisdom Energy"
I find this laughable in it's simplicity, absurdity and truthfulness. Buddha's teaching are very simple but to put them into practice ain't so simple, ya know?!
