Seeing the World Upside-Down

If someone asks me what Buddhism is, I tell them that it's seeing the world upside-down.
Although many people around the world harm others in their quest to build a self-centered existence, Buddhism is the opposite: It's the process of eliminating the concept of a separate self, and living for others. And to conventional society, that's seeing the world upside-down.
---Venerable Tong Songchol (1912~1993)---
