Structure and imagery
Our Wheel of Engaged Buddhism is comparatively simple. The image in each of the ten sectors symbolizes a path of engaged/spiritual practice. Click a section to identify its path.
|Cultivating awareness in daily life||Moving into the world|
|Embracing family||Extending compassionate action|
|Working with others||Exploring new terrain|
|Participating in politics||At ease amid activity|
|Caring for the Earth||Spreading joy in ten directions|
Five of the paths are primarily fields of practice.
The other five paths are primarily modes of practice.
A wheel format makes it possible to envision ten paths simultaneously, give them equal weight, and consider their mutual relatedness. The ten paths are meant to be suggestive rather than exhaustive. Each path is actually an untold number of paths, as individuals and groups in different circumstances find their own way.
