Thank you, Stephanie. This is the dharma.
“…the practice of “engaged Buddhism” could really be said to begin with the Buddha himself. The Buddha didn’t remain silently seated under the Bodhi tree, keeping his awakening to himself, hidden in his soul’s depths. Rather, he went out into the world, and the dharma began to engage with its culture and society of 2500 years ago.”
…we need religion, but we need a religion that unites rather than divides.
…what I’m aiming to promote [is] — a universal spiritual oneness for all of us, welcoming to those who may be seeking refuge from a narrow sense of religion.
