Confidence in the Buddha's Teachings

By Nina van Gorkom

     Theoretical knowledge is not enough.  Without developing understanding of the reality appearing at the moment all book knowledge is in vain. "It is now, it is now", she said time and again.  Many times she spoke about the Buddha's enlighttenment and his compassion to teach.  Without his teachings we would not understand anything about our life.  We should have confidence that it is worthwhile to study his teachings so that we shall know realities as they are, as non-self, anatta.
