3 Core Teachings of Master Eimei
1 Gratitude and Compassion
2 Degree of Buddha Nature
3 Universal Peace
Through various sources people have been lead to believe that money brings total happiness. This false belief and some of its associated attachments, such as greed, selfishness, hate, envy, pride, and power and control over others eventually leads to a disconnect from one’s spiritual heart. Only Buddha’s compassion, love, wisdom, and gratitude can counter and expose their true origin.
As compassion, love, wisdom, and gratitude begin to unfold in the human heart, one becomes in tune with ones spiritual heart, and the need for spiritually connecting with others and the environment becomes a priority. Unfortunately, if excessive materialistic gain and other false beliefs are not exposed, our world as we know it will be environmentally tipped to a point of non-sustainability.
A prediction of several dozens years of sustainability is all that is available.
Master Kawakami believes that for world peace to be achieved people from all walks of life and from every part of the world must walk hand in hand and live in peace.
