“You engage in your world joyously. When you wake up in this way, you effectively help everyone you encounter come to enjoy the very same bliss, which you see they already have deep within themselves. All beings possess this same ability to wake up and become enlightened. What a great discovery!
Today in the modern world, Buddhism, as represented by its best leaders, such as H. H. the Dalai Lama, is not a religion seeking to convert you; it is not asking you to drop your birth religion or your secularism. Rather, it offers you a time-tested method of developing your own intelligent understanding of reality, ridding yourself of living in denial on any level.”
