The Three Jewels

weecheng Post in Uncategorized

In the Buddhist philosophy, there are three very important elements, namely “Dharma”, “Buddha” and “Sangha”. Dharma is the law of Nature, Buddha is a person who has attained full enlightenment, and Sangha is the practitioner of Dharma.

Drawing parallel to our Taiji journey, we also have three jewels, namely the Taiji principles, the Teacher, and the Taiji practitioners. The Taiji principles must be able to stand up to the test of time. The teacher is one who understands these principles fully, and has the compassion to share his wisdom. The Taiji practitioners, as the name suggests, put whatever Taiji principles they have learned into practice.

When we have all these three elements in our Taiji journey, we will get closer to full understanding of the Taiji principles with each passing day.
