Making the Best of Everything
Great Lakes RTC Chapel
“The true entity of all phenomena can only be understood and shared between Buddhas. This reality consists of appearance, nature, entity, power, influence, inherent cause, relation, latent effect, manifest effect, and their consistency from beginning to end.”

10 worlds are potentials within each of us – what we experience differs vastly from one person to another
