Step by step

The essential steps of the path to the removal of suffering--to Nibbana--are pointed out by the Buddha. It is the way of careful cultivation of the mind so as to produce unalloyed happiness and supreme rest from the turmoil of life. The path is indeed very difficult, but if we, with constant heedfulness, and complete aware­ness, walks it watching our steps, we will one day reach our destina­tion. A child learns to stand and walk gradually and with difficulty. So too have all great ones, in the march to perfection, moved from stage to stage through failure to final success.
