Buddhism Day by Day: Buddhism Stresses the Interconnectedness of all Life

“Buddhism stresses the interconnectedness of all life. It is only limited capacity of our senses that causes us to place so much in the separation between ‘them’ and ‘us.’ Because of this interconnectedness, by using violence, you not only injure or destroy the other person but also yourself. Those who use devalue others’ lives actually devalue and ruin their own lives.”
