Buddhism Day by Day: The Lotus Sutra Provides No Easy Escape Route from the Difficulties of Human Life
“The belief taught to the Lotus Sutra provides no easy answer, no escape route from the difficulties of human life. In fact, it rejects such easy answers, instead it implores us to take up two tools for exploring life, belief and understanding, and use them to continually challenge and work to protect ourselves and work to perfect ourselves. And it also provides us the energy to do just that.”
