Buddhism teaches that life at each moment embraces all phenomena. This is the doctrine of a life-moment possessing three thousand realms, which is the Lotus Sutra’s ultimate teaching and Buddhism’s essence. Because of the profound way our lives interact with people around us, it is vital that we reach out to others, that we be engaged with our environment and with our local community. A self-absorbed practice combined with no concerns for others or the world outside of our practice in not what The Buddha taught and will never better the world within or beyond. Embrace this life and those you share it with and you embrace a greater purpose.
Peace and Love, Jim
