Buddhism, with its various schools and sects, is one of many religions in the world, and is not and never will be accepted by everyone. The Dharma, however, is something that applies to everyone and everything, whether we know it or not, believe it or not, and is therefore Universal. To call it Universal is superfluous, but I do so in order to distinguish it from sectarian Buddhism.

If asked to tell our life-story without mentioning anyone else, we could say almost nothing, for our lives are made up—like a tapestry—of innumerable threads that are 'not-us'; they are not simply 'ours' but in fact, mostly 'not-ours'. Anyone—and anything—we meet, who crosses our path or impinges upon us in any way, becomes part of our experience, or what we think us as 'our life'. In reality, there is no such thing as 'my life', but an extremely rich and varied composition of so many things. See how it happens: just by reading these words, I am becoming part of your life and, in an equally subtle way, you are becoming part of mine. There is very little about us that is really 'I'.
Since all the words we use come to us from other people, there is no copyright on any of my books. If anyone wishes to reprint anything from them, or even all, they may do so without permission; all I ask is that they do not copy wrong!
