Cultivating Wisdom

Cultivating WisdomFaith in Buddhism is not blind faith that rejects reason. It is in fact a rational function, a process of the cultivation of wisdom that begins with a spirit of reverent searching.

The impulse of true reason is to continuously and eternally transcend the confines of the present self. It aims to reach beyond its grasp, always higher, always transcending itself.

The source of energy and foundation for that constant search is faith in something larger than oneself. Faith purifies reason, strengthens and elevates it.
