We need both strength of body and mind
Just as we need good physical health we also need strength of mind to ensure our well-being; and we develop it by cultivating ethics.
In this modern age when so many of us are off to the gym to try to find a well maintained body we forget that we also need to look to the inside as well.

Non violence is not a sign of weakness
Non violence is not a sign of weakness, but rather one of self-confidence and courage.

The followers of…Continue

Develop a sense of universal responsibility.

We are all interdependent on others in some way or another no one person or nation or faith is truly independent from those around them.
These means that our actions are not only going to effect our selves but they will also affect others as well.
Like water the smallest ripple can lead to…Continue

To know that we have identified that others need our help and that we are seeking in what ever way we can to offer that help does give us a inner calm.
From this we can…Continue

A more compassionate attitude helps you communicate
Having a more compassionate attitude helps you communicate more easily with your fellow human beings
These words ring so very true for if we listen to people with a compassionate ear without pre judging them we will hear their words much clearer.

Never to seek self…Continue
