Description

From photoshop to 'brush up your appearace' on Zoom, from fake news to fake fact checks to fake elections to fake election challenges, from fake bodyparts to botox to facelift to faking a non-existent jet-set lifestyle for instagram followers - we live in times of Peak Fake.


To practise the path of Dhamma, Ajahn Dhammasiha urges us to stop faking it and instead become true, frank, honest, genuine, authentic. The danger in faking things is not only that we may deceive and ultimately disappoint others, but at some stage the dividing line between fake and real becomes blurry, and we may not be able to clearly distinguish anymore ourselves what's real and what's not real.


Rather than ending up believing our own fakery, we have to aim at brutal honesty with ourselves if we ever hope to realize the only state that's really real: 'Amosa-dhammaṃ Nibbānaṃ'
