So Advanced??

Technologically A Giant, Spiritually A Pygmy
* Isn't it an irony that technologically we are so advanced ... Cloning, Robotics, Space Conquest, Nanotechnology .... and yet the dukkha or suffering of man seems to be increasing ...
* With political conflicts, turmoil, wars, natural calamities, social problems multiplying, man has not become more peaceful despite technological advances.
* The problems, conflicts and pain man experiences are rooted in GREED, ANGER and DELUSION.
*Unless and until we walk the spiritual Path of Love, Kindness, Compassion, Understanding and Wisdom, we will continue to have physical and mental suffering.
* In this short human existence, what really matters in the final analysis is not 'the conquest of the external world or other people' but 'the development and purification of our inner world ... THE MIND'.
With Metta,
