    people through all the time will keep chasing true happiness and inner peace through becoming a Buddhist or spiritual guy or start avoiding cities and start living in a remote natural beautiful places or whatever but this is not enough. 
     you can have Inner peace and true happiness even in New York city for example, or in a prison or in a third world country or whatever. This is only can be achieved by submitting yourself to the creator of inner peace and true happiness, the creator of everything including you and the people around you. your God and my God who is one, the creator of everything, have sent prophets to the people to tell them to worship only him and neglect whatever beside him but only few people are accepting this invitation. I'm a Muslim and I remember one of the righteous Muslim talks, he was wearing a very old clothes since he was poor, and he was having a hard piece of bread and a water so he can put the bread into the water and start eating it without giving him hard time. Then he said something which is very important for you guys to understand. He said : "if the worldly kings know about the true happiness and inner peace we have, they would fight us for it with swords"

    Yip and after the spiritual discussion we off to the bank to get the loan for the new mandir, mosque, synagogue and church.  Of course it will not occur to us to ask the banker: 'where did the money come from?'.

    Some food for thought. Since the ingredients for my tea was stolen by the banker, so I cant offer tea.

    Yes, the life is very fragile. However, any spiritual health of the righteousness, honesty, sincereness, loving-kindness, faithfulness will absolutely help to heal human's weakness nature and brighten up the fragile life to lead to broaden straight road. The flame of sadness, unhappiness, disappointment, hopelessness, fearfulness, will be dimmed and gradually be diminished by your confidence from God. This is why one nation under God is very important to us.

    the seeds of compassion will spread to around the world , if we sowed and cared it then spread it from one to one.

    NEVER trust people who can not laugh…and dance. These two ethereal individuals…are rascals. Yes. Rascals. To watch these two interact…is like watching 2 little brothers. They have great love and affection for eachother. If they can generate love…compassion and kindness…so can we. As the Dalai Lama says..I am a simple monk…nothing special. We too…can radiate love…kindness…and compassion.

    IN THE CURRENT MIND OF ME as what I recognized , perhaps the words of Buddha ( Prince Siddharta ) is like any existent or nature , is just an arrow / a signboard pointing at ME , pointing at what I am , a mirror that reflecting ME.
    Awaken to own nature , one realize he is EMOTION that travelling in a natural process leading back into a state before he existed , into a state of nothingness .
    I am EMOTION . I am desire , love , anger , hate , greed , ego , fear , worry etc and I am travelling in a natural process leading back into a state before I existed . Into a state of nothingness .
    Change and decreasing is the natural nature of this process .
    This natural process of becoming ME and leading ME back into a state before I existed is recognized by ME as “ Buddhism” and I like all others existent regardless living or non-living is a “ Buddhist” and “ Buddha” is a state before I existed . Buddha is a state of nothingness .
    The one that changed is Buddha . The one that changing is Buddhist . The process of changing is Buddhism .
    So Human is Mind + Physical Body .
    Mind is EMOTION + Referrals .
    Referrals is a form of knowledge / faith / beliefs / experiences / skills etc .
    Emotion is the one that propel a human . Emotion like others living has a natural nature of growing .
    Emotion is generating referrals by using physical body as a tools to sense /detect .
    Thinking is the action of emotion in a process of knowing / understanding to creates “ Referrals” .
    Emotion is feeding on referrals to grow and to travel in life .
    As emotion growing or as referrals increase in mind , mind will expand .
    As mind expanding is like a balloon and pressure inside the balloon increases , pressure resembles suffering .
    So as emotion or referrals increases , suffering increases .
    Emotion is feeding on referrals to grow and referrals is generated by physical body as a tool / by emotion action of thinking in a process of knowing. understanding, accepting .
    Emotion is travelling by hopping on to referrals by referrals in a journey known as life .
    Life is emotion that travels.
    Each moment , emotion is hopping from referrals to referrals living the life , like a monkey hopping from tree to tree but each moment , the hands/legs of the monkey must hold on to a branch .That is the nature of understanding and also the nature of living .
    So to generate referrals , emotion is hopping from referrals to referrals in a process of knowing / understanding .
    Emotion then hopping from referrals to referrals in a process known as living . Emotion is feeding on referrals to grow and to travels in life.
    But concurrently as emotion ( Buddhist ) is naturally growing ( in Buddhism )…….emotion is also travelling in a natural process that pulling it back into original state before emotion existed ( also in Buddhism ) , into a state of nothingness ( Buddha ) .
    Time is the nature of this journey .
    As emotion trying to generate referrals in a process of knowing / understanding …there is another natural process that react in an opposite nature / reverse manner that returns emotion back into the mind .
    Just like when you throw a rubber ball onto a concrete wall, the ball bounce back to you .
    If the mind is of less emotion / less referrals …the mind will received back this returning emotion and this process is REALIZATION .
    Realization is a process that without holding on any referrals .
    Only realization will reduce the growth of emotion. As emotion reduce in growth, mind will contract.
    As mind contracting is just like a balloon losing air , pressure inside the balloon decreases …suffering reduce .
    So only realization will reduce suffering .
    Perhaps the words of Buddha is about REALIZATION not something one should understand or know as knowing / understanding will lead to creation of referrals that will only lead to suffering.
    The reason I claim Buddhist Teacher is misleading is that Buddhist Teacher is apparently holding on referrals in mind not only they will suffer of this but by teaching it to others , the holds on these referrals will increase .
    Buddhist Teacher is apparently teaching others to understand / to know / to experience Buddha’s words that will lead them to create referrals in their mind ….their mind will expand and they will suffer .
    For the last 16 years and after communicated with hundreds of Buddhist Teacher from various background all over the world. I at a current mind that claim all Buddhist Teacher are in greater suffering holding on to an expanded large mind filled with referrals .
    I currently of a claim that all Buddhist Teacher are robbers that robbed Buddha’s words , acted with the nature of parasite feeding on Buddha’s words and is a “ Terrorist Of Mankind” for misleading Buddha’s words and leading people into a path of greater suffering in the name of Buddhism .
    I am now STILL exploring the reason / nature of a Buddhist Teacher teaching Buddhism and cordially invite all Buddhist Teacher to debate with me AS TO CHALLENGE THIS MIND OF ME .
    Regardless what / how , everyone is a teacher to me that provide a great source of realization of me .
    My name is Ee Chuan Seng from Malacca , Malaysia and I am not a troll or a spam . I will be responsible with all these claim . My email is [email protected]

    So beautiful! HH the Dalai Lama is so beautiful. 🧡
    I've also personally enjoyed watching lots of Master Sri Avinash Do myself lately. #SriAvinashInnerPeace
    His talks have made me feel much more relaxed & more kind.

    Responsibility, liabilities towards our children must be fulfilled as we have brought them forth. We have also to see our parents,too, when they need in old age. Those who run away from doing so they can't claim to be spiritualists. Talking and preaching is easy but to come up to the expectation of those teachings is not so easy. Without having touch with other forms of spirits that exist in this world and other realms one can't claim realisation and revelation Most of the time our efforts are ephemeral and transitory and spiritual claims are false and seem as mirage in deserts. The nature and instincts and needs differ from place to place, country to country, religion to religion, sect to sect and climate to climate. As the nature of different groups of animal kingdom are different so is the nature and instincts of human beings . A lion, a crow, a parrot,a hawk ,a jackal, a deer ,a chimpanzee ,etc all have different inborn instincts. A man follows that Faith which matches his nature. So we can't have harmony and peace. If Tibetans are peaceful there is China to disturb them. If India wants peace and harmony there are terrorists to disturb Indian democracy. Threats are not from outside India but the internal elements getting money and helping outsiders to disturb our peace. H PPS(Pb) India

    The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, I would imagine, are the two oldest guys on that stage. And yet, they managed to drag their asses down to America to partake in this. I salute them both.

    I love how serious all the other people were and how silly the two most important people there were 😜
    They know the secret to happiness is NOT taking oneself too seriously !
