美國佛教會 會長 菩提比丘:Get Out and Vote

There are only five more days until Election Day, Tuesday November 3rd. This is our chance to vote in what is likely to be the most important election in our lifetime. Remember that voting is our voice, the way we silently say what we think is right, an act by which, as mere individuals, we take responsibility for the whole. With our vote we speak on behalf of the entire nation, for future generations, and indeed—given the leading role that the U.S. plays on the world stage—for the future destiny of humankind. The election is just too critical for anyone to sit out. It is our responsibility, our sacred duty as U.S. citizens, to vote: to choose the candidate that best represents our values and our hopes for the future.

苟嘉陵-由諸佛說法依二諦-紀念鴻洋

日前收到博蕙傳來的訊息,不覺一驚。她說的沒錯—鴻洋的離去,竟然真的已經三年了⋯

但在這三年之中,與鴻洋的對話幾乎可以說是存在於我寫的每一篇文章裡,無論是他提出來的質疑,還是他本人的見解。鴻洋曾不只一次地對我說:「嘉陵!佛法現代化最大的問題,應是現在已經極少有人希望了生脫死斷輪迴了。」現在想想,他實在是講得沒錯,也一直都是最了解我所期盼的中國佛教現代化的人。多年來,我們都在探索中國佛教的未來,常在一起交換最新的想法。鴻洋對我的影響,當然是極大的。
