Buddhism has this notion of Dharma Gates. It means that there are ways of entering into this primordial state of freedom and joy. And what’s important is that these gates are plentiful, diverse and always present and available in every moment.
In other words, paradise is right here and now if only you’d ‘enter into it’. Samsara is nirvana. All it takes is a shiftless shift into the freedom of recognition and acceptance.
