Buddhism Day by Day: Even Places Shrouded in Darkness for Billions of Years can be Illuminated
“Even places that have been shrouded in darkness for billion of years can be illuminated. Even a stone from the bottom of a river can be used to produce fire. Our present sufferings, no matter how dark, have certainly not continued for billions of years — nor will they linger forever. The sun will definitely rise. In fact, its ascent has already begun.”
