Pañña naranam ratanam
Wisdom is human’s most precious gem.
The goal of Buddhist cultivation is the attainment of wisdom to realise the Truth.
The Buddha spent 45 years educating and guiding the monastic and lay communities so that people can ‘see the truth’ for themselves. The Buddha called this ‘anusāsani patihariya’ –
the “miracle of education” – and, the only miracle which He approved.
(Digha Nikāya Sutta No.11, ‘Kevatta Sutta’)
