“The study of the self. This is the foundational practice of Buddhism. Basically it’s the whole point. So what is the point… What is this really about? To study the self addresses everything we encounter in life. We can’t encounter anything but the self actually. It’s about our entire experience of living. Of life and death. It addresses questions such as Who am I?, What is the nature of my suffering? … And my well-being, What is my place in this world?, What is my relationship to the things I encounter? … And ultimately How do I live a life of meaning and energy?” ― Shoryu Bradley
