Buddhism: the Lotus Sutra means Confronting the Fundamental Darkness in One’s Own Life

“The Lotus Sutra, which explains that all people can attain Buddhahood and that all people are Buddhas, embodies a sprit of a supreme respect for human beings. By contrast, those teachings and ideas that seek to turn people into objects to be exploited embody ultimate disrespect for human beings. Such disrespect is an expression of fundamental darkness.
