Buddhism: The Real Essence & Practice of Humanism is in Heartfelt 1-to-1 Dialogue
“The real essence and practice of humanism is found in heartfelt, one-to-one dialogue. Be it summit diplomacy or the various interactions of private citizens in different lands, genuine dialogue has the kind of intensity described by the great twentieth-century humanist and philosopher Martin Buber as an encounter ‘on the narrow ridge’ in which the slightest inattention could result in a precipitous fall. Dialogue is indeed this kind of intense, high-risk encounter.”
