Buddhadharma : Spring 2018
JACK KORNFIELD 83 “May a deep understanding of ___________ arise.” If you are a teacher offering the instruction of a resolution to a practitioner, it helps to write it down clearly and hand it to the medi tator. Choose the sequence of resolutions with intuitive care. For example, the dukkha resolution has a powerful—and sometimes quite difficult—response, highlighting the suffering in the world; make sure it’s the right time for this resolution in the student’s prac tice. For most practitioners, it is best to start with impermanence, love, or emptiness. Keep in mind that resolutions, like all skillful meditation practices, will be helpful for some students and not for others. Wisdom resolutions can bring a deep unfolding of understanding for meditators who might otherwise rest in long periods of concen tration, experiencing ease and jhana in their practice with no major insights. Natural wisdom is always available. It simply awaits a quiet mind, an open heart, and careful attention to know its liberating truths. This text is offered for the benefit and blessing of all who practice the Buddha’s Marvelous Way.
