We need to strengthen such inner values as contentment, patience and tolerance, as well as compassion for others.

Everybody wants a happy life and a peaceful mind, but we have to produce peace of mind through our own practice.

Serving and helping others out of compassion is non-violence in action.
Most of our problems are related to the mind, so we have to work to reduce our destructive emotions.
If we can refrain from harming others in our everyday actions and words, we can start to give more serious attention to actively doing good.
Placing all our hope on material development is clearly mistaken; the ultimate source of happiness is within us.
If we can cultivate a concern for others, keeping in mind the oneness of humanity, we can build a more compassionate world.

It’s unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved only on the basis of prayer, what we need is to take action.

Concern for others’ well being reduces fear and suspicion, prompting the openness and transparency that gives rise to trust and friendship.
Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that.
Refraining from harm, not out of fear, but out of concern for others, their well-being and out of respect is non-violence.
Whether we are happy or not depends on our attitude; compassion, for instance, leads to a calmer mind.
