  • Jun 11 2011: When each and everyone of us learn to really "see". When each of us can recognize the causes and the effects of our own actions as well as each others, what harms or happiness these actions bring to the world and ultimately effecting ourselves, this accompany with the act of compassion will change our world. Buddhism can shows us the way.

      Jun 11 2011: Yes Thi, if you believe Buddhism can show the way, then that is where we start. Other faiths and non-faiths know the way too that's why I believe we need to translate our beliefs and our convictions into our common interests and we let it drive to bring more happiness to all people.
      • Jun 11 2011: The reasons why I believe that Buddhism can show the way is because Buddhism does not base on the so call blind faith. The ideas is to dispel all blind faith, to truly observe, see for ourselves what really going on in us and around us. Only when we can do this without blind faith, self-interest, without any sort of brain washed authority, can we then change the world for the better.
