Personal Belief Statement:
I follow the belief outlined by Kazuo Inamori, the highly successful Japanese Businessman that a person can work towards enlightenment by the hard effort and sweat of his daily working life. He states that one does not have to go to a monastery or go into isolation to obtain enlightenment. One can work towards enlightenment by concentrating on perfecting one’s daily tasks.
