Overview

This book uses an ancient Buddhist text, the Lotus Sutra, to explore the role of religious Buddhism in contemporary society. "Buddhism is very hard to understand if we assume that our deepest nature is impure, flawed and unworthy. We hold on to this view for most of our lives.

To understand Buddha-nature, we have to accept an inherent goodness in ourselves and others."
