To celebrate 60 years since the publication of ‘The Survey of Buddhism’, here is today’s quote:

Far from being due to fate or chance or the fiat of the creator-god, human bondage to phenomenal existence is the product of human volitional action.. The secret of bondage is also the secret of liberation.  By exerting a force strong than that of hate, stronger than desire, stronger even than ignorance, the Wheel of Becoming can be made to revolve in the opposite direction… Ch1.13
