“When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
The teachings say that the confusion and suffering we experience is temporal or “adventitious,” which means that it is non-essential…not part of our basic nature. This is a lot different from the idea of original sin.
On the path of bodhicitta, sometimes we even make the wish: “May I take the sufferings of others onto myself!” This is an outrageous aspiration. Beings are limitless, therefore suffering is limitless, and so our compassion and care for them too must be limitless.
