Old Path White Clouds

Old Path White Clouds
Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha
by Thich Nhat Hanh


...the joys of meditation can nourish body and mind and provide the strength needed to pursue the path to enlightenment.

Every living being possessed the heart of enlightenment. The seeds of enlightenment were everywhere.

If you live simply and wholesomely, not ruled by desires, it is possible to experience the many wonders of life.

...suffering is not the true nature of the universe. Suffering is the result of the way we live and of our erroneous understanding of life.

But suffering is only one face of life. Life has another face, the face of wonder. If we can see that face of life, we will have happiness, peace, and joy.

Love based on compassion can provide the energy needed to respond to the suffering of others.
