Buddha in the Republic of Korea

Om mani padme hung

My son, while on a hiking trip, took this lovely photo.

May all sentient beings be happy and have the causes of happiness.

May sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

May all sentient beings never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering.

May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free from attachment and detachment.

Egypt, May you flourish in peace and non-violence…

Egypt, May you flourish in peace and non-violence…May you know happiness and the causes of happiness, May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering…May you never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering, May you abide in equanimity, free from attachment and detachment.

Egypt, It is incredible. And it brings chills to me…..the non-violence…the inter-connectedness of the internet world….what a powerful tool.

Egypt, With every tool…we create and we destroy…May the peace and non-violence that has been created live on for many years!

Calm Abiding

Besides settling the mind, mindfulness meditation develops a certain kind of strength, a sort of mindfulness muscle, and cultivates stability so that every thought doesn’t drag us out of the room. Hostile thoughts, sexual thoughts, thoughts about ice-cream don’t just drag us away. We are able to be steady and present with whatever arises in our mind – that’s why this practice is also known as calm abiding. ~ David Nichtern

Smiling is important.

Smiling is very important.

If we are not able to smile, then the world will not have peace. It is not by going out for a demonstration against nuclear missiles that we can bring about peace.

It is with our capacity of smiling, breathing, and being peace that we can make peace. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
