by Tashi Nyima
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.
