Where are we to turn in this most turbulent world? Every day it seems we are made aware that anger and violence towards others is increasing. Where is our ability to find peace and resolve in such troubling times? Our hearts are heavy with the tragedies in Dallas, Florida, Minnesota, and Louisiana. As a country we, unfortunately, are not alone, as Nice, France has also suffered severe loss of life. In France, as the citizens and visitors were celebrating Bastille Day (likened to our July 4th celebrations) loss of life occurred seemly out of nowhere.
As followers of Buddha’s teachings, how do we remain steadfast in our devotion and commitment to his words? How can the life teachings of Buddha bring us peace and keep us focused on our journey toward the light? Let us “together” focus on what we can do to help each other find the peace that all mankind deserves.
