The Bodhisattva Path...
by Venerable Shen-Kai
The Bodhisattva cultivates everywhere
... progress oneself in order to help others progress,
... save oneself in order to save others,
... transform oneself in order to transform others.

1. The purpose of learning and practising Buddhism is to purify the human mind.

2. When the mind of everyone in the family is pure, then our home is pure.

3. When the mind of everyone in this society is pure, then our society is pure.

4. When the mind of everyone in the country is pure, then our land is pure.

5. When the entire human race in the world is pure, then our world is as happy as the Western Pure Land.
