A common space for harmonic peacemakers
If our mind is not peaceful and tamed, no matter how marvelous the external circumstances are, we will be burdened by frights, hopes, and fears. With a tamed mind, we will enjoy wealth or poverty, health or sickness; we can even die happily. With a tamed mind, having many friends is wonderful, but if we have no friends, it is all right, too. The root of our own happiness and welfare rests with a peaceful and tamed mind.
