Found Buddha

The Buddha is found in other people

– even the ones we do not like very much.


Francis Harold Cook

Lost in a moment

Your body is like a dew-drop on the morning grass,
your life is as brief as a flash of lightning.

Momentary and vain, it is lost in a moment.

Birth and Death

Birth is okay and death is okay,
if we know that they are only concepts in our mind.

Reality transcends both birth and death


Thich Nhat Hanh

Peace is the way

It is my conviction that there is no way to peace.

Peace is the way.


Thich Nhat Hanh

Master your breath

Your breathing should flow gracefully,
like a river, like a watersnake crossing
the water, and not like a chain of rugged mountains or the gallop of a horse.

To master our breath is to be in control of our bodies and minds.
Each time we find ourselves dispersed and find it difficult to gain control of ourselves by different means,
the method of watching the breath should always be used.


Thich Naht Hanh

Cling to anything

Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.

If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions
– we cannot be free.


Thich Naht Hanh
