The traditional Buddhist teaching of the Four Minds is used to create awareness of the preciousness of human life, the truth of impermanence, the law of cause and effect, and the nature of suffering as we move about our lives.   When contemplated along-side our consumption habits, the Four Minds help create a contrast between actions that promote general health and well-being, and actions that are harmful to our own health and that of our planet.

So many revolutions & reform movements end up simply replacing one gang of thugs with another.   If we have not begun to transform our own greed, ill will and delusions, our efforts to address their institutionalized forms are likely to be useless, or worse.
