The Framework for Ego Reconstruction
This episode describes how the core teachings of Buddhism provide the framework for us to reconstruct our ego. This process is the core of the transformative effect of Zen practice. See your mind, know your nature, become an Awakened One. The light of this fundamental wisdom and compassion is always here. When we understand this framework, we can internalize it. When we internalize it, we begin to put it into practice. As we practice it, we experience the true freedom and joy of life.
