Caring for & Cultivating Life
“Just as a garden needs to be protected, tended, and cared for, so do
ethical integrity, focused awareness, and understanding. No matter how deep our
insight into the empty and contingent nature of things, that alone will do
little to cultivate these qualities. Each of these areas of life becomes a
challenge, an injunction to act. There is no room for complacency …” Batchelor S. “Buddhism without beliefs. A contemporary guide to awakening.” Riverhead Books, NY, 1997. www.stephenbatchelor.org
