Dharma Discussion on Saturday 12 December 2015 (1)
Thay explained that real wisdom is acquired not through studying, analysing, theorising, intellectualising, etc. Real wisdom is gained through calming and quieting the mind. For example, when the sea is turbulent and the waves are thrashing about, we cannot see the water clearly. Likewise, when the mind is calm and stable, our true nature appears. This is real wisdom.
