October - Earthly Paradise: Compassionate Community
This world is our earthly Pure Land. It provides answers we need for spiritual enhancement and well-being. We should strive to be an energetic person to improve human life. Through exploring the four key virtues of kindness, compassion, joyfulness and equanimity, we can find ways to greatly benefit our selfless attitudes and daily lives. Then, using this understanding, we can lay a broad and bright path, creating a positive impact for other sentient beings to live in a more convivial community.
