Buddhism is the “body”; it is the basis of everything. When Buddhism is in disarray or its teachings are lost, society falls into a state of confusion. Unless there is a philosophy in place that supports society on a fundamental level, the world will lose its foundation. As a result, society will descend into the path of Animality ruled by the law of the jungle, into the path of Anger bound by ceaseless conflict, and into the path of Hunger swirling with discontent. Ultimately, it will plunge into the realm of the endless suffering of Hell. That is why “establishing the correct teaching” is of utmost importance. Once that is in place, “the peace of the land” will be realized without fail.
