On the here and now
Author: Dalai Lama
There are many Buddhist teaching practices that focus on being in the present moment. It is a condition that allows us to translate the fundamental principles of doctrine into practice: if we remain tied to the past, if we are anxious for the future, if we do not experience the emptiness that derives from giving up attachment, if we do not fully understand the interdependence of all things, we will never be able to live life in its fullness. And to find peace and happiness, here and now.
