Alan Watts - Intro to Buddhism - I

The idea of a Yana, of vehicle, comes from the basic notion or image of Buddhism as a raft for crossing a river. This show is ordinary everyday consciousness, such as we have, mainly the consciousness of being an ego or a sensitive mind locked up inside a mortal body. A consciousness of being you in particular and nobody else.

The word Buddha means the Awakened One. From the Sanskrit root Budh, which means to wake. Or to know.

So then, that state of letting go instead of clinging to everything. Supposing you’re in business, and you have to make money and keep up this family support or something like that you know the thing is do that but don’t don’t let it get you down.

Do it what the Hindus call Nishkama Karma. Karma, Nishkama means passionless karma activity.
