Buddhism Day By Day: In Buddhist terms, the great universe & the self the great macrocosm & the microcosm are one

“In Buddhist terms, the great universe and the self — the great macrocosm and the microcosm — are one. Since the self and all phenomena are one, all things are interrelated. Termed dependent origination, this teaching explains that all things weave a single whole in which individuals live in relation to all others.

In other words, all beings and phenomena exist or occur because of their relationship with other beings and phenomena, and nothing in either the human or the nonhuman world exists in isolation. All things are mutually related to and interdependent with all other things. They all form a great cosmos maintaining the rhythms of life.”
