Buddhism Day by Day: The Highest Offering to the Buddha to Inherit the Buddha’s Sprit
“The highest offering to the Buddha is not to worship something reminiscent of the Buddha. Rather, it is to inherit the Buddha’s sprit. In other words, the highest offering lies in struggling to manifest, as one’s own way of life, even a part of the Buddha, who upheld the philosophy that everyone is a Buddha and tirelessly strove to save all from suffering.”
