Buddhism and the Purpose of Life


There is something very deep in the following quote. It relates to the purpose of life:

"Macbeth was not blessed with an understanding of the Four Noble Truths. Near his death he says about life:

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing. (Act V. sc.v 27-30)

Contrast this with the perspective the poet Wun-Men speaks of when we have refuge in the Four Noble Truths:

Ten thousand flowers in spring
the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life."
