Is Buddhism or Buddist institutions/leaders fail to response to the current crisis in the world?

Is Buddhism fail to response to the current crisis in the world?

Or the Buddhists leaders and its institutions  fail to response to the current crisis in the world?

Buddha never said that he is a Buddhist. what he realised is the truth of life that is universal, regardless people have faith or no faith.

Therefore. for dealing with the issues and challenges face in the world now.

We shall looks at whats go wrong in our society , the roots and then use an universal approach that seek solution.

If we are confidence in  the Buddha teaching is universal, hence, even without saying” this is actually the way what Buddha or Buddhism  ” etc  to deal with people who choose has no faith or not Buddhists.

Secondly, the real challenge today is  perhaps the   Buddhist  institution fail to response to these challenges in the world. It is not Buddhism fail to response to the challenge of current world. It is the leaders and institutions fail to response to these challenges .

Look at the advance of churches in the world and their deep social engagement in society, we can reflect on this matter. They have propagated the social transformation theology that refer to liberation theology. In addition establish very active social conviction actions in all areas of changes in society- not the type of welfare work. But able to engage in making changes of the social economy and even political institutions that created collective samsara to the society and world.

Therefore,  we need  socially engage Buddhists to engage themselves  to make changes on the oppressive political economy institutions that created the collective samsara to the people in the world. The wisdom of Buddhism is able to answer these challenges if the institutions and people  are willing to socially engage and bring the sprints of universal humanity to the real world.
