Buddhism Day by Day: Religion Deals With the Spirituality & Impacts the Society of Followers
“When individuals practice a teaching as intended, the expected result becomes manifest in their lives as well as in their environment. Religion not only deals with spirituality but also has a significant impact — positive or negative — upon people’s daily lives and their society. The nature and extent of a particular religion’s impact becomes the standard for evaluating its validity.”
