Talks about Life from the Buddhist Perspective

Life's Responsibilities

From the Buddhist perspective, there are only two kinds of responsibility in life. The first is to fulfill our vows, and the second is to pay back our karmic debts. We should learn the Buddhas and bodhisattvas in making great vows to save suffering sentient beings. In paying back our karmic debts, we should actively contribute to our society for the benefit of the public, and treat any situation we encounter, whether good or bad, with equanimity.
