Spiritual Medicine

Patients with mental illnesses often stop taking medication when they assume they have gotten better… only to suffer from relapses. The feeling of getting better is often precisely due to the medication’s effects.

This applies to Dharma learning and practice too. We sometimes assume we have absorbed and cultivated enough of the Dharma, and thus pause in learning and practice… only to backslide eventually. The Dharma is spiritual medicine – Panacea!
