Without & Within

The Buddha’s teachings do not stand or fall on particular historical events. They describe a system of education of body, speech and mind leading to awakening.

Over the past centuries many men and women, monastic and lay, have put the teachings in the texts into practice, and proved for themselves their truth and effectiveness.

Ultimately, it is for this reason that Buddhists have confidence in the authenticity of the Buddha’s teachings that have been passed down to the present day.
