by | Oct 19, 2023 | Blog

The post titled Buddhism is Needed in the World is now up on Buddhism for All. Angela from the team reflected on it, and invites you to do so too.

🌕 Angela’s Reflections:

The three poisons of greed, hatred and delusion as described in Buddhism are not only catalysts for personal suffering but are now also manifesting as tangible threats to our planet.

By transforming these poisons in our mind, we not only attain personal liberation, but also become agents of change for the world. Buddhism emphasizes wisdom, compassion and interconnectedness – principles that can guide us toward sustainable living and unity.
