The Law of Gratitude is to be practiced, and not to be discussed

Most of us are asleep, dreaming, and want to remain so

Love is giving and forgiving

Happy Dharma Day 2012

Love cannot be thought about

Love cannot be thought about, love cannot be cultivated, love cannot be practised. The practice of love, the practice of brotherhood, is still within the field of the mind, therefore it is not love. When all this has stopped, then love comes into being, then you will...
