Remember the principle of having few desires

“When we stop feeding our cravings, says Thich Nhat Hanh, we discover that we already have everything we need to be happy. “

“The human mind is always searching for possessions and never feels fulfilled. This causes impure actions ever to increase. Bodhisattvas, however, always remember the principle of having few desires. They live a simple life in peace in order to practice the Way and consider the realization of perfect understanding as their only career.”
—The Sutra on the Eight Realizations of the Great Beings
