On Buddhism


1. "Buddhism is put into action through 'jihi,' meaning compassion. 'Ji' is to offer joy to others, and 'hi' means to alleviate their pain."
2. "The fundamental goal of Buddhism is the realization of the peace and happiness of humankind."
3. "Let's always strive to practice 'actual faith.' Let's stick to the actual without deviating a single step. 'Theoretical faith' is a purely intellectual pursuit, of a merely philosophical dimension. It is faith in words only. 'Actual faith,' on the other hand, is a living reality in terms of both our inner conviction and all aspects of daily life. In other words, it means giving practical expression to our faith. It means to employ our faith to the fullest, both in our work--whatever our profession, be it a bookseller or a schoolteacher--and in our private lives."
