Ancient words, present choices, future visions
Buddhists like to talk about living in the moment. But the reality is that we inherit a vast tradition including ancient scriptures from the Buddha himself. A meaningful response to Buddhist ideas takes into account the heritage of the past in making choices for the future. And just as the people in the past—the creators of our tradition starting with the Buddha—made choices that still affect us today, the choices we make now will determine the future of others who live on this planet after us.
Is it possible that, learning from the wisdom of the Buddhist heritage, we can live our life today in a way that makes sense of the looming threats of the future?
