Buddhism Day by Day: A Buddha Ponders How to Transform The Sufferings of Others
“A Buddha is definitely not an absolute being living a static existence. A Buddha shares the sufferings of others and, sensing the condition of the time, earnestly ponders how to transform that condition. A Buddha vows to struggle in order to lead the people and the age to enlightenment. The strength of this vow causes the Buddha’s enlightenment to mature into rich wisdom”
