Serving Others

It is not enough to receive, preserve, or believe Buddhist teachings in one's head. One must put them into practice in daily life. This cannot be done in isolation, for the very meaning of bodhisattva practice is serving others. This is the most important meaning of offering a light to the Buddha.

---Gene Reeves, in The Stories of the Lotus Sutra---
