The Right Understanding
The Right Understanding is sometime called “Wisdom”. It is often translated as “discernment” as it provides a sense of direction and at a higher level, the right view and right direction. This is the right way of looking at life, nature and the world as they really are. Simply put, it is to look at life and nature in a way that one understands how things really are. Understanding the right view inspires the practitioner to lead a virtuous life in line with our Moo Do philosophy.
