The idea of engaged Buddhism implies that there is some kind of disengaged Buddhism. This in my opinion could not be further from the truth.
What could possibly be more engaged than directly encountering and overcoming the very root of suffering?
"The cause of suffering is self grasping.
The cause of happiness is unbiased love.
Then we know the nature of our mind". Garchen Rinpoche.

The essence of the minds of sentient beings interpenetrate without obstruction. They are vast like space, deep like the ocean. Being like space, their essence is the equal everywhere, with no distinctive marks to be apprehended.
