The city of "ultimate happiness"

The remains of an ancient city in Sri Lanka (Sigiriya)

Dhamma is the true existence of nature. It is always there whether we see it or not. We cannot see it clearly as our minds are already conditioned (delusion). Buddha just showed us the path which was already there. Arahants and the great forest masters have traveled the same path, and discovered this same “city.” If we follow the same path diligently, using the right technique, we should be able to arrive at the “city” ourselves, in this very life time. This is the city of "ultimate happiness."
