There are three reasons we study and practice Buddha’s teachings:
1. to develop our wisdom,
2. to cultivate a good heart, and
3. to maintain a peaceful state of mind.
Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. If our mind is not peaceful then even if we have ideal conditions, we find that we are not happy. On the other hand when we experience peaceful states of mind, we can be happy even if our external conditions are bad. Therefore, the development of these qualities is of the utmost importance for our daily happiness, and for our society in general.
