Being Peace by Thich Nhat Hanh

If we are peaceful.
If we are happy.
We can smile and blossom
Like a flower.

And everyone
In our family,
Our entire society
Will benefit
From our peace.

Buddhism and vegetarianism

An article from Examiner.com –

Buddhism and Vegetarianism

Is this one area where the west is improving on eastern practice that lacks vegetarianism? Thich Nhat Hanh seems to think so. What do you think?

Discrimination at home

True Home – Thich Nhat Hanh

Who do you discriminate against?

Who do you wish suffering on? Who do you suffer for? What arbitrary characteristic calls for discrimination and suffering?

Individuals with different politics? Other races? Genders? Cultures? Religion? Education levels? Sexuality? Species?

See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
– Dhammapada

An earth for all sentient beings

“It is our earth, not yours or mine or his. We are meant to live on it, helping each other, not destroying each other.”

– J. Krishnamurti
