Buddhism Day by Day: People Who Are Vigilant Infuses Their Lives’ Into the Life Force of the Eternal Buddha

“Shakyamuni proclaims, ‘People who are vigilant do not die; people who are negligent are as if dead.’ This is definitely true. Unremitting diligence in our Buddhism practice — brave and vigorous exertion — infuses our lives with the great life force of the eternal Buddha. In contrast, people who try to get by in life through cunning and deception enact a living death.”
