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. So many people work from this assumption, and it causes them to seek improvement through changing their own nature—from broken to fixed, from wretched to redeemed. To understand Buddha-nature, we have to accept an inherent goodness in ourselves and others."
