Advayavada Study Plan – week 10

[Advayavada Study Plan – week 10] In weeks 1 to 5 we again treated the preliminary subjects; in week 6 we again honestly took stock of, and responsibility for, our personal situation at this time with respect to whatever we are presently doing or are concerned with, or about, such as our health, relationships, work, study, our place in society, etc. (first step on the Noble Eightfold Path); in week 7 we again took an appropriate and timely decision to adjust our course (second step) bearing in mind that truly commendable undertakings are those which are in agreement with wondrous overall existence and take us forward at the fundamental level of our life; in week 8, in order to lay a strong foundation for achieving our goal, we put our decision and improved objective in writing as precisely as possible (third step); in week 9 we further cultivated and developed our very best attitude and commitment to steadily improve our way of life (fourth step), and, to continue with this quarter’s 13-week Advayavada Study Plan, this week we shall implement our improved way of doing things as best as possible. This task is based on the fifth step on the Noble Eightfold Path: samma-ajiva (in Pali) or samyag-ajiva (in Sanskrit); in Advayavada Buddhism’s personalized usage: our very best implementation, realization or putting into practice; in Dutch: onze beste uitvoering (de vijfde stap op het edele achtvoudige pad).
