Buddhism Day by Day: Essential are Intellectual Illumination & Education to Profound Spirituality

“The Indian philosopher Swami Vivekanada declared: ‘It is religion, maker of men that we need. It is education, maker of men that we need.’ Fostering people, building characters-this is absolutely fundamental for creating a bright future. Toward this end, both the profound spirituality of religion and the intellectual illumination of education are essential.”
