Fascinating to Learn Each Day

Sometimes it gets overwhelming and feel very daunting...take refuge in this day, in this moment, in the Buddha, the Sangha and the Dharma!
As proven over the centuries, the best way to digest the teachings would be to listen to teachings or read on a subject, and to spend some time pondering over it before continuing to the next subject, because unlike an academic study, all the subjects have direct implications for our own lives. Study, reflection and meditation are essential, as we need to check if these teachings are relevant to us. Buddhism should not be accepted on the basis of blind faith, but rather because we find it sensible.
 The Buddha put it this way: "Only when it agrees with your experience and reason, and when it is conducive to the good and gain of oneself and all others, then one should accept the teachings, and live up to them".
