Expecting intellectual understanding of Buddhist texts alone to solve our problems is like a sick person hoping to cure his or her illness through merely reading medical instructions without actually taking the medicine. As Buddhist Master Shantideva says: “We need to put Buddha’s teachings, the Dharma, into practice because nothing can be accomplished just by reading words. A sick man will never be cured of his illness through merely reading medical instructions!”
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - “Modern Buddhism”
