More than just a philosophy, or even a religion, Buddhism is a practical path of human development. Its goal is to see things as they really are, achieved by cultivating the mind in meditation and supported by leading a life of meaning and value.
The outcome of such radical transformation is a powerful altruistic urge and the energy, clarity and courage to make a real difference.
Buddhism is a whole vision for life – one that includes meditation, study, ritual, friendship and a deepening sense of purpose.
