Before I got interested in Buddhism, I was always very passionate about human beings and helping those in need. I guess that's one of the reasons why I began looking into the peace corps. I was just curious as to what the people on this forum thought of that kind of thing. Or is there another way to do the same thing but without going through the government?
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither! Blog,-Some Suttas Translated,Ajahn Chah. "Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
Sorry I should explain. I keep forgetting that a lot of the users on this forum are from the UK or elsewhere.
The Peace Corps basically is a US government sponsored group that goes to third world countries and helps out there in a variety of different ways, from teaching kids english to construction and social work for troubled children.
