We talk about the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha, and all these instructions and methods of practise we can do and benefit from. But in essence, to find Dharma one has to look inward, not outward. One has to constantly exert effort in examining oneself and one’s own mind. Of course, there are methods of meditating, there are philosophies, and there are doctrines and logic. Within Buddhism, there is a tremendous treasure of teachings. Nevertheless, if one were to gather them all into one, one would have to say that everything is inherently contained within one’s own mind.
