When Siddhartha Gautama was a young man, it's said that he was so struck by three particular observations that he felt he had no choice but to make a radical change in his life. These were the traditional 'three sights': old age, sickness and death in his fellow human beings.
Here three dharmacharinis from the Western Buddhist Order offer often moving contemporary responses to the same observations, and give perhaps a glimpse of how, as with Siddhartha, full reflection on them can light our darkest paths to full Awakening.
