“Politics and spirituality emerge from the bodhisattva commitment to strive for enlightenment so that they may be beneficial to others. Social activism is one and the same with spiritual practice. There is no separation so long as the commitment to benefit all beings never wavers. Bodhisattvas teach by example, not by quoting scripture.”
(In the Shadow of the Buddha by Matteo Pistono
