This Leads to Joy

Joy (pamojja) is the next link in the chain of Transcendent Dependent Arising. It follows from Faith (saddha) because once we have acted on our initial, intuitive sense (faith) that this is the path that could lead to the end of Suffering (dukkha)…and found that, if fact, it really DOES bring release….then of course we are joyous!

So we practice with more confidence (faith).

Which leads to an even greater release of suffering.

Which leads to still more faith.

And lots more joy!!!
