Daily Dharma

When a lion roars in the forest, all the animals tremble and scurry to their places of refuge. This is not the fear of a helpless victim but a fear that stirs them to action for their own safety. In the same way, when a Buddha roars out the truth of impermanence, suffering, and nonself, those who are wise are moved by the profound sense of spiritual urgency.
– Andrew Olendzki, “What’s in a Word? Samvega”
