In answering the question 'What is Buddhism?', Sangharakshita identifies higher evolution - the development of higher states of consciousness - with the twelve links in the progressive trend of the Buddha's teaching of conditioned co-production.

In this excerpt we hear about the unification of all our emotional energies in the state of bliss.

May all beings be well and happy, without fear, without jealousy, may they be full of love, faith and joy. Positive emotion is an essential part of the higher evolution.
