Why I Support "Sattva"?
In the later Buddhist tradition, there is a hierarchy of the state of accomplishment for an intelligent and conscious being: Vajrasattva, Mahasattva, Sarvasattva, Bodhisattva, Samaysattva and Sattva...
Sattva is the first step of the ladder. We all are Sattvas—the sentient beings who are conscious, contemplative and performers. I support this movement as it is not bound by race, creed, geography or ideology. The goal of the movement is pious and it aims for the greatest good of the sentient humanity. Sattva aims to connect people with the common thread of peace, joy and prosperity. May the movement spread far and wide!
