Nonviolence

Zen Flash

HH-Chadral-RinpocheTo obtain real peace and happiness in this world one has simply to follow the path of ahimsa –nonviolence– which is common to all religions. If we do not like to experience any pain or suffering of any kind, how can we expect any other creature, whether big or small, to feel otherwise?

There is no better prayer or offering we can make to Lord Buddha than being thoughtful, kind, and compassionate, abstaining from taking the life of any fellow human being, animal, bird, fish, or insect.

―Chatral Rinpoche
