What is the Way?

We often talk of the Buddha’s Way, but the word ‘Mahayana’ (the northern Buddhist tradition) means ‘the Great Way’.

When encountering spiritual ideas from the east, it is likely that we will eventually come across a philosophical idea known as 'The Way’.

This 'Way' can never fully be put into words, though for many centuries countless poets have tried.

In Buddhism we also look for this ‘Great Way’, which reveals to the practitioner the wordless teachings of the Buddha.

These hidden teachings are revealed through direct insight, words alone cannot transmit them.

In this series of Articles we will be examining what this 'Great Way' is and how through our own experiences we may come to know it.
