There are various levels of wisdom, each holding its own significance. In the teachings of Buddha, our quest is to uncover the ultimate wisdom—the profound comprehension and revelation of the true nature of all phenomena, commonly referred to as ultimate truth. The discernment between the right path to embrace and the wrong path to discard also calls for wisdom, a quality indispensable in both mundane and spiritual pursuits.

In this text, His Holiness elucidates the diverse levels of wisdom and their paramount significance. Moreover, he provides practical insights on how we can cultivate wisdom from our current circumstances. Through relatable advice and personal anecdotes, he guides us on a journey that resonates with our own life experiences.
