Buddhism Day by Day: Human Society Dedicates Their Lives to a Lofty Ideal Who Shine the Brightest Now
“Human society, as viewed with the ‘eyes of Buddhism,’ takes on a completely different meaning from that discerned by ‘secular eyes.’ No longer are the powerful above and ordinary people below. Status does not make people great, and people great, and authority does not people noble. Instead it is people wholeheartedly dedicated to a lofty ideal who shine the brightest.”
