John Mullins reflects on the meaning of the word “essential” in the context of COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and his own experience after falling ill with the coronavirus. The essence of the Jodo Shinshu teaching is to take refuge in the Buddha with an entrusting heart, but it is difficult to reflect deeply until we are faced with the reality of impermanence. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are reminders that in gratitude for the teachings, we must actively work to build a society that reflects the compassionate care we receive.
