Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, a philosopher, educator, author and peace advocate writes, “A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation and, further, will enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.”
Human Revolution is the process of individual inner transformation; transforming that inner core, our lives, ourselves and the society.
The first step to changing both oneself and one’s environment is by shifting one’s own thinking and looking at things from a different perspective. When was the last time you’ve had this one defining moment that changed something - big or small - but with an everlasting impact? It is a challenge to change our life at the very core, striving to improve, no matter what we face. It means fighting for a cause, challenging the existing norms and bringing about a change -not just for yourself, but bringing out the truest potential and deepest sense of humanity from within all of us, creating something new/better. Taking responsibility for transforming our own lives is the first step toward creating a human society based on compassion and respect for the dignity of all people’s lives.
It is a revolutionary change in our actions and behavior. It means to purposefully, consciously engage in behavior that is grounded in compassion, in actions that break you free fro the lower karmic path and bring us higher life condition. When human revolution spreads to the family, the country and the world, it becomes a noble revolution for peace.
In present times, an essential humane revolution like this will be the primary focus to create happy individuals and a happy society by manifestations of greater compassion in our daily conduct and behavior;an undertaking of “Action” revolution.
