The View, Meditation and Action
by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
What is wisdom? Within my very limited understanding of Buddhism I think the identity of wisdom is very complicated because it's supposedly a mind in its height of normality. But what is normality? That is a very difficult subject to discuss. I am emphasising this because as I travel people ask me questions like, "What is the role of women in Buddhism?" "What do you do as a Buddhist? Do you eat meat?" What I am saying is the approach to Buddhism or the interest in Buddhism is always an ethical one. The wisdom is always left out, and that's when you begin to fail to understand Buddhism. Because whether you are a vegetarian or not, whether you are celibate or not, all these are actually secondary; wisdom is the most important.
