A practitioner must slowly learn to rely on the teaching to achieve happiness. The teaching, begins from giving up evil for good. When faced with pain and suffering, we must rely on the teaching again and again, and when our ability to make the choice is correct, our joy will be progressively intensified. When such a habit is cultivated successfully, we will discover that our lives become free. Whether other people praise or criticise us, in short it means that no one can deprive us of that moment of joy that came from taming our affliction within us.
