Acharya Moh Hardin shares some thoughts and contemplations to explore the ‘dharmic’ insights and Shambhala vision expressed in this quotation of Albert Einstein: “A human being is a part of the whole called by us the ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. We experience our selves, our thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the ego. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.” Come learn more!
