Buddhism In the Face of Huge Institutions

What can the individual accomplish in the face of a huge institutions that run our world,

This feeling of powerlessness fuels a vicious cycle that only worsens the situation and increases people’s sense of futility,

At the opposite extreme of this powerlessness lie the Lotus Sutra’s philosophy of three thousand realms in a single moment of life and the application of this teaching to our daily lives,

This principle teaches us that the inner determination of an individual can transform everything; it gives ultimate expression to the infinite potential and dignity inherit in each human life.
