Words of Wisdom for Nov. 21, 2019:
Robert A. F. Thurman on Sound Faith

"There is no reason for a sound faith to be irrational. A useful faith should not be blind, but should be well aware of its grounds. A sound faith should be able to use scientific investigation to strengthen itself. it should be open to the spirit not to lock itself up in the letter. A nourishing, useful, healthful faith should be no obstacle to developing a science of death."
— Robert A.F. Thurman,
The Tibetan Book of the Dead
