Lux in Tenebris
There is a lovely devotional practice in Buddhism in which the devout Buddhist sits in quiet meditation and radiates to all living beings - Love, Joy, Compassion and Peace in turn. If this technique was practised more widely True Peace would be all the nearer.
PEACE and Human ActionIf a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him as the wheel follows the foot of an Ox.
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him The Dhammapada
Telling it like it is - Jon GleurNo leader is going to give us peace, no government, no army, no country. What will bring peace is INWARD TRANSFORMATION which will lead us to outward action.
Inward Transformation is not isolation, not a withdrawal from outward action. On the contrary, there can be right action only when there is right thinking, and there is only right thinking when there is no self-knowledge. Without knowing yourSELF, there is no peace. We should ALL work at personal Transformation and hasten world peace.
