Through 2,600 years of geographical and cultural adaptations, the heart of the Buddha’s message still remains relevant for our times. This is because it points to timeless truths, the primacy of mind as a force for good or ill, and the deeper nature of mind as indivisible and timeless consciousness. Realization of the unchanging nature of mind alleviates many of our fears, and puts the challenges of life into perspective. However, this doesn’t preclude us from engaging a world on fire, which urgently calls for our attention. This is done through training as a Bodhisattva, one who serves the Dharma, sentient beings, and the Earth, through embodied, compassionate activity.
