Contemplation: Pillars of International Tendai

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your object of contemplation:
I propose the pillars of International Tendai, for laity and ordained, should be:
  1. Spiritual awakening of the participant through practices, devotion and study,
  2. positive contributions to self, family, society, and the environment,
  3. engaged service to others 
  4.  integration of the sacred and the provisional to attain peace and equanimity on earth and an assurance of liberation from dukkha, now and in future lives.
Monshin Naamon, Abbot of the Tendai Buddhist Institute
