Buddha taught on what exists ultimately and on what is conditioned, in a way that is directly relevant to our daily lives. Understanding this makes the experience of lasting happiness possible. Buddhism does not proclaim dogmas, but encourages critical questioning. Through the right meditations, the intellectual understanding of the teachings becomes a personal experience. Additional methods solidify levels of consciousness that have been reached. The goal of Buddha’s teachings is the full development of the innate potential of body, speech and mind.
