In “Introducing Buddhism: Our View of the World and Our Place In It” with Venerable Damcho Diana Finnegan, who holds a PhD in Buddhist Studies as well as extensive translation and practice experience, we learn that the purpose of Buddhist philosophy is to function as a window through which to view the world. Venerable Damcho explains how studying the words of the Buddha leads to a greater exploration of how we see things and people and how we relate to them, and the way this profoundly affects our relationships with others.
