I love friends, I went more friends. I love smiles. That is a fact. How to develop smiles? There are a variety of smiles. Some smiles are sarcastic. Some smiles are artificial – diplomatic smiles. These smiles do not produce satisfaction, but rather fear or suspicion. But a genuine smile gives us hope, and freshness. If we want a genuine smile, then first we must produce the basis for a smile to come.
If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then also there is no need to worry.
Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.
Some people, sweet and attractive, and strong and healthy, happen to die young. They are masters in disguise teaching us about impermanence.
When we pray together, I feel something. I do not know whether you would call it blessings, or grace –but in any case there is a certain feeling that we can experience. If we utilize it properly, this feeling is very helpful for developing our inner strength.
It is said that if you want to know what you were doing in the past, look at your body now; if you want to know what will happen to you in the future, look at what your mind is doing now.
For as long as space endures, and for as long as living beings remain, until then may I, too, abide, to dispel the misery of the world.
