It is not by destroying our human family, we are destroying poisons but by purifying phenomena, our mind.


"Let us try to make a better world, a happy world with happy people. What I normally call nirvana-permanent stop of negative thoughts-that is my private case, my private nirvana.

What we need is a nirvana for the society, for a happy live together without discrimination, a society full of love and kindness. We can build on that. In this each and everyone has responsability."

Free translation of words from His Holiness The Dalai Lama. :namaste:
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
