“When you see all the suffering, you have to know how to suffer less — how to nourish yourself with joy and happiness — so you can help other people who suffer more… Protect yourself from being carried away by the collective energy of hate, violence, bitterness, and anger… Create an island of freshness, compassion, and peace within.”
~ Zen Buddhist Master, Thich Nhat Hanh, who helped lead one of the great nonviolent resistance movements of last century in his home country, Vietnam.
The above quote is taken from the following very timely video, “How to Fight Injustices Without Being Consumed With Anger?”:
May all beings be free of suffering.
May all beings be happy.
