Buddhism is a Constant Dialogue

Only within the open space created by dialogue,

Whether conducted with our neighbors, who history,

With nature or the cosmos,

Can human wholeness be sustained,

We are not born human in any but a biological sense;

We can only learn to know ourselves and others and thus be trained in the ocean of language and dialogue fed by the spring of cultural tradition.
