    When you read or listen to these very old stories, if you wonder how much is really true, the Buddha gave some advice that might help. He said that when you listen to what a monk says you should test the meaning, weigh or consider it, and depend on your own insides to know the truth of it. Then follow and practice what you know to be true.
    Note: Sabedoria e Liberdade.

    Freedom in the Western sense is always seen in the context of the institutional principles of human society. But freedom in the Eastern sense means freedom from the sufferings that are inherent in human existence, regardless of the social institutions that may prevail.

    Just as Benjamin Franklin’s discovery of electricity was not harnessed for practical use until many years later when Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, Shakyamuni’s enlightenment was inaccessible for all but a few until Nichiren taught the fundamental practice by which all people could call forth the law of life from within themselves.

    Buddhism clearly explains that suffering emerges in our hearts because we forget the principle of impermanence and believe that what we possess will last forever.
  • Anne shared from The Buddha in Your Mirror: Practical Buddhism and the Search for Self by Woody Hochswender, Greg Martin, Ted Morino
    Unlike the Western religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Buddhism makes no claim of divine revelation. Instead, it is the teaching of a single human being who, through his own efforts, awoke to the law of life within himself. He was a man who wrote nothing down and about whom we know very little—but what is known has become the catalyst for changing millions of lives.
