Happiness in Life

“A look filled with understanding, an accepting smile, a loving word, a meal shared in warmth and awareness are the things which create happiness in the present moment. By nourishing awareness in the present moment, you can avoid causing suffering to yourself and those around you. The way you look at others, your smile, and your small acts of caring can create happiness. True happiness does not depend on wealth or fame.”-Nhat Hanh

Beauty of Self

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.When you are born a lotus flower,be a beautiful lotus flower,don’t try to be a magnolia flower.If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life.True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself,accepting yourself,having confidence in yourself.”-Nhat Hanh

Vision in Life

“Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one.To develop understanding,you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.When you understand,you cannot help but love.And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.”- Nhat Hanh
