Dharma Teachings

The only reason for the continual existence of Buddhism is to spread the Dharma teachings to bring about transformation in our world and ferry all sentient beings to the shore of the enlightenment. The government’s perspective that Buddhism can guide and lift the moral standards of the secular world, for offer a convenient way to interact with the foreign friends, or bring about development to local tourism, is considered secular and mundane. Buddhism can be handy and offer convenience to secular life and at the same time does not breach its tenets.

However, it is important to remember that Buddhism brings benefits of Dharma, not secular or worldly benefits.

How does Buddhism remain in the world and how does it adapt to the ever changing secular society? I can say that this is a big question that we have been facing ever since Buddhism was introduced to our country, even ever since Shakyamuni Buddha initiated his teachings.
