There is no final doctrine or dogma because there cannot be absolute truth, there cannot be even absolute Buddha in the face of inconstancy. The Buddhist doctrine is focused on human realities. Its purpose — elimination of the feeling of disappointment and inadequacy generated by limited, egoistical consciousness.

It is easier to begin from an o'clock of a simple physical activity — washing of ware, cooking, etc. Cerebration is more difficult, and conversation — is even more difficult.
