Blessings and wisdom are said to be two wings of a bird that enable him to fly to nirvana. To live a free and happy life, one’s environment should be favorable. This comes from the blessings one has or has created. However ideal one’s environment is, one cannot avoid the inherent suffering of human life: old age, illness, death, etc. So one should ultimately work with one’s mind to attain complete freedom. By cultivating wisdom, we can relate to our environment in a very different way. This is the path of wisdom.
