Description

Language is a means for communication as well as transmitting knowledge. The realization of the truth, on the other hand, requires a high level of knowledge. Can the use of language alone provide people with sufficient knowledge and skill to realize the truth? Or, in other words, is human being capable of thinking all the way to the truth?

Excerpted from the eBook

Humans use language to convey intentions, express feelings and communicate information and thoughts to one another; our linguistic expressions reflect our perceptions of the world.

Wisdom and knowledge are indispensable to the realization of the truth. Ignorance or the lack of knowledge is behind misleading experiences, misconceptions, and deficiencies in communication.

“Wisdom beholds the truth through critical reflection of Dhamma”

Bhikkhu P.A.Payutto

Understanding the Dhamma’s sublime qualities and applying the age-old virtues to modern day’s problem require exceptional skills. Bikkhu P.A. Payutto is such a scholar. A Buddhist monk of Theravada tradition in Thailand, the venerable is a recipient of UNESCO’s Prize for Peace Education in 1994. His extensive teachings and writings apply essential wisdom of the Dhamma to present day’s problems such as world peace, politics, economics, business, education, workplace, society, health, family, love, and self-improvement.

This developer misleads

:
Not the full book. Only a few pages then the app prompts you to buy the full book.

It would have been honest for the developer to say that this is only an excerpt and that you can buy the full book for the $3.99 from within the app.

In any case, there's a tradition in Buddhism for all these resources to be provided on a donation basis -"dana" - so that everyone can be liberated.

A good resource with much material is the free app called ATI
