"A world in trouble?
War in the Far East and the Middle East. Suicide bombers. Riots on the streets. Gaols and Psychiatric hospitals full. Soaring crime. Racial hatred. Violence in the schools and in the home. Economic Meltdown.
Yes. A world in trouble.
Everywhere man is striving for Freedom. But he understands freedom as freedom to do what he wants. But a man who does what he wants is often not free at all. He is the slave of his desires. Real freedom is not freedom to but freedom from.
Freedom from suffering.
Here is the answer. Simple, straightforward. Open to any man whatever his background."
