Thich Naht Hanh

I am in the process of transferring this 'Label' to my other blog - 'Spiritual, not Religious'.

When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment ; he needs help. - Thich Naht Hanh

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work. - Thich Nhat Hanh

When you say something really unkind, when you do something in retaliation your anger increases. You make the other person suffer, and he will try hard to say or to do something back to get relief from his suffering. That is how conflict escalates. - Thich Nhat Hanh

With mindful breathing, mindful walking, and mindful dwelling in the present moment, we don’t need to consume and run after objects of craving in order to be happy.  - Thich Nhat Hanh
