Social Dimension

sulaksivaraksa2011-jpg-sizedBuddhism is not concerned just with private destiny, but with the lives and experiences of all beings. Any attempt to understand Buddhism apart from its social dimension is fundamentally a mistake.

Until Western Buddhists understand this, their embrace of Buddhism will not help much in the efforts to bring about meaningful and positive social change, or even in their struggle to transform their own egos.

—Sulak Sivaraksa, International Network of Engaged Buddhists

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
