LIGHT IN THE DESERT
Let us think of a desert country lying in absolute darkness and
many animals moving about in it blindly. Naturally they will be
frightened and as they run into each other during the night there
will be frequent fighting. Such a conception is a pitiable one. Now
let us think that a superior man appears with a great light and
everything becomes bright and clear. We can imagine the relief of the
creatures as they are able to look about, and their happiness as they
recognize each other and renew their companionship.
This is like the field of human life as it lies in the darkness
of ignorance. Those who have no enlightenment wander about in
loneliness and fear. They are born alone and die alone, they do not
know how to associate together in peaceful harmony, and they are
naturally fearful and despondent.
Suddenly Buddha appears in human form and by his wisdom and
compassion illumines the world. In this light people find themselves
and find others and are glad to establish human fellowship and
Thousands of people may live in the world but we cannot call it a
fellowship until they know each other and have sympathy for each
other. A true community is a place where truth and wisdom are its
light, and where the people know each other and trust each other and
have things in common, and where there is a harmonious organization.
In fact, harmony is its life and its happiness and its meaning.
