Buddhism Day by Day: Self-reflection Cultivates Profound Humanity

“Reading is dialogue with oneself, it is self-reflection, which cultivates profound humanity. Reading is therefore essential to our development. It expands and enriches the personality like a seed that germinates after a long time and sends forth many blossom-laden branches.

People who can say of a book “this changed my life” truly understand the meaning of happiness, Reading that sparks inner revolution is desperately needed to escape drowning in the rapidly advancing information society. Reading is more than intellectual ornamentation, it is a battle for the establishment of the self, a ceaseless challenge the keeps us young and vigorous.”
