For most people the beach is somewhere to go on vacation, or for an occasional day out. The idea of living there might seem like a dream, but what is it really like for those who live right there and can see it every day?
The “goal” of Buddhist practices could be seen as creating awareness, wisdom, and happiness – one of the most common practices known to the Western world being meditation. Following the teachings of Buddha can ultimately lead into the enlightenment of Buddhahood but the basic goal is to become more developed spiritually and get more insight of the reality that surrounds us. The elemental tenets of Buddhism are easy to remember, and also very practical: nothing is fixed or permanent, actions have consequences, and change is possible. So unlike some other religions, Buddhism is open to all people regardless of their nationality, caste, sexual orientation, or gender.
