Cooperative

Venerable Tashi has been on fire lately.

Buddhism - BUDDHADASA BHIKKHU "What is the world full of?... | Facebook

The entire cosmos is cooperative. The sun, the moon, and the stars live together as a cooperative. The same is true for humans and animals, trees, and soil. Our bodily parts function as a cooperative.

When we realize that the world is a mutual, interdependent, cooperative enterprise, that human beings are all mutual friends in the process of birth, old age, suffering, and death, then we can build a noble, even heavenly environment.

If our lives are not based on this truth, then we shall all perish.

―Buddhadasa Bhikkhu
