I spent part of the weekend talking with a friend who is having relationship issues. So please indulge me while I try to explain a little about a Buddhist view of marriage. Party to educate, but also as I attempt to explain it, I will have to concentrate, study and meditate, thereby educating me at the same time. This discourse will be general in nature, as to be specific, I risk creating a karmic link. I will be referring to a well written book by Venerable Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda, Human Life and Problems. I obtained my copy from the Temple I attend meditation class at. It is distributed free of charge, however a nominal donation to the Temple you obtain it from will assist them in providing future copies. This book covers such topics as Man’s place on earth, marriage, sexual issues, addictions and other topics.
