army destroyed Kapilavastu. We cannot control the outcome of our actions. Still,

bear fruit. Whenever a few people are committed to the vision of a free and just
humanity, transformation can happen, despite the greatest odds. The story of one
such amazing transformation is told in Bury the Chains, by Adam Hochschild.
