THE BENEFITS OF DHARMA




The benefits of dharma recounted by the Buddha and his disciples are the results of the proper practice of dharma. You cannot reap all those benefits just by listening to a few teachings. If you do not practice, you will think that the dharma does not work – especially when problems arise and you cannot deal with them. You might even give up the dharma and never benefit from it. To enjoy its positive effects, practice it first.


~ His Holiness the 17th Karmapa
