WHAT IS TO KNOW THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING FOR?
Posted on Aug.14.2009 @ 06:13PM EDT by chontri

Can the greed or craving of the people around the world be stopped by knowing that cause?
Can the anger or hatred of the people around the world be stopped by knowing that cause?
Can the ignorance or stupidity of people around the world be stopped by knowing that cause?
