When our minds are clouded by delusion, we see the world according to our fear and prejudice. Then we act out of this limited view, and in the process we create suffering. In this poignant talk, Sensei relates this Buddhist teaching to current events, reminding us why we practice—to see reality clearly so we can put an end to suffering.
