Root down the violence in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully. Seek peace. When you have peace within, real peace with others is possible.
“If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace. You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?”

To obtain real peace and happiness in this world, one has simply to follow the path of ahimsa —nonviolence.
If we do not like to experience any kind of pain or suffering, how can we expect another creature, whether big or small, to feel otherwise?
There is no better prayer or service we can offer to the Buddha than being thoughtful, kind, and compassionate, and abstaining from taking the life of any fellow human being, animal, bird, fish or insect.
—HH Chatral Rinpoche
“Root out the aggression in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully. Seek peace. When you have peace within, real peace with others is possible.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh~
“If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, we cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love, those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.”
Thich Nhat Hanh,
