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

Love and Compassion

“The more we see,the more we understand.The more we understand,the easier it is for us to have compassion and love.Understanding is the source of love.Understanding is love itself.Understanding is another name for love;love is another name for understanding.”- Nhat Hanh
