Applied Buddhism is a Finalist!

Blogisattva Award Finalist

“This past six months has been quite the wild ride for us here at the Blogisattvas. First off, I want to thank everyone, the readers, the Buddhist publications and most of all the hard working bloggers out there that have made this whole thing possible. The response we received in nominations far exceeded anyones expectations, and that is why we would like to also thank the hard work the judges did in digging through literally hundreds and hundreds of entries. It was certainly no easy task for them!”

    Sumitta,

    I searched your blog but could find no “contact me” form; I apologize if I missed it and this is not the place to ask a question. I am a beginner to Theravadan Buddhism. I have used Access to Insight for the majority of my studies– I live on the opposite side of Pennsylvania from you, and there are no teachers in my area.

    I was wondering how to most efficiently incorporate studying the Buddha’s teachings with my daily life. Do you read a sutta a day? Do you write/take notes about it? What is most effective method for learning? I’ve found that I will read in medium-sized doses and, for a week or so afterward, notice the relevant topic (from the sutta) in my everyday life, and try to apply the Buddha’s teachings there. However, excluding certain perpetual teachings relevant at all times (like mindfulness), what I have read seems to fade away, or I become very busy and forget to read at all for months at a time.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Marie
