How can one integrate Buddhism into their daily life?

Great question Tara. This is the core of my practice and teaching life. Buddhism, we must keep in mind, is a method for detaching the mind from our cravings to expect permanence in all that we experience. The more we study, the more we develop skill in observing our mind and the way it is influenced by our desires and by the actions of others. The more we become aware of the way that our mind attaches itself to impermanent things, emotions, opinions, experiences and situations, we can also begin to detach our minds and become objective, less subjective. When we develop this skill, we become less influenced and affected by our minds perceptions. This leads to calmness, a solid and pervasive joy and equanimity. This takes effort, and we may achieve this state one day and loose it the next. To hang on to this mind state is the goal and method of practice. To develop our sharing nature about this skill is the Bodhisattva way. This is a tremendous boost to our efforts. Not every conversation can be about the Buddhist method as we develop, but this should be the goal, eventually. At any rate, I think you can see from this note that the Buddhist method is a program for daily living. Call it awakening, or method, or mindfulness, or the science of mind, all are the same thing as long as you understand what it means. As Shakyamuni and the scholarship of Buddhism teaches, the words are not important, the person or teacher is not important, but it is the meaning that is everything.NaMuMyoHoRenGeKyo
