Lessons of inclusiveness, unity, respect, and self-awareness are more crucial than ever in our present world.  Buddhism’s teachings on suffering and liberation from suffering is harmoniously inclusive. The emphasis of Buddhism on empirical investigation and mental training makes it profoundly applicable to modern lives, so that regardless of your beliefs, the practices remain valuable.
