The Buddhist teaching of interdependence explains how we are all interwoven in a web of relationships.
How do things come to be? What is my influence on them? Why should we care for a child on the other side of the world? Or the coral reefs in the ocean? According to Buddhism, everything is connected, everything relies on causes and conditions for its existence. The Buddhist teaching of interdependence explains how we are all interwoven in a web of relationships. Studying this deepens our understanding of why we should take care of each other and the world, no matter how distant something might be.
