Knowing the characteristic nature of your own consciousness is the way to bring peace to yourself and the world at large, because peace is your own inner experience, not something derived from outside of you. The beauty of peace is something that has to be experienced. With peace comes satisfaction. You have to generate all this within you. Once you have had this experience you can share it with others. That’s the way to bring true peace to the world- first get it yourself, then share it with others.
- Lama Yeshe
“Resolutely train yourself to attain peace.”
- the Buddha
Abandoning restlessness and anxiety, he dwells undisturbed, his mind inwardly stilled. He cleanses his mind of restlessness and anxiety.
- the Buddha; Samaññaphala Sutta.
A thousand candles for peace.
