Seeking honest politics distinguishes AAP from BJP and Congress

In a recent article I wrote that most of the people campaigning for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) come from different social strata but are united by a common desire to seek honest politics. On reading the article a friend asked me if I believed that everyone in AAP was honest and everyone in Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or Congress was corrupt. My response to him was, of course there were some honest individuals in BJP and Congress and maybe some dishonest ones in AAP, but the difference between the two sets of parties is not only relative but also fundamental. This is an attempt to understand that difference.

Self-Discipline: Cornerstone of the Dhamma

The Buddha, using himself as the supreme example, based the entirety of his teachings on self-mastery. The Four Noble Truths, specifically the prescription detailed in the Fourth Noble Truth, the Noble Eightfold Path, instructs us to carefully and continually observe the mind, which leads us to disciplining the ego or false sense of self; this in turn enables us to make conscious corrections in one’s external behavior, and in the thinking and feeling that takes place in one’s internal environment; all of which expands one’s Right View, which ultimately leads to enlightenment.
