Creating a Wakeful World

February 14, 2013

Book coverWe are trying to create a Buddhist world, an enlightened society, and one of the principal ways of doing that is for each one of us to become sane. Once you have understood, studied, and practiced, you might actually have to do something. Together we might need to wake up the whole world from its sleep and create an enlightened society in accordance with Great Eastern Sun vision. So we should appreciate one another. We should appreciate that we are going to create a wakeful world.

From “The Dawning of the Great Eastern Sun” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. Volume Three: The Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness, pages 24, 26

  • Jesus T. Howard says:

    The Enlightened Society Assembly (Sutrayana Assembly) is a Shambhala mahayana program that emphasizes the view of the intrinsic goodness of all beings, practices that rouse bodhichitta and compassionate openness, and confident activity that engages fully in the world. In particular, living up to its name, this Assembly will focus on how we can create enlightened society on the spot, at home, in our city and nation, and wherever we go.
