Happiness

Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
Houston, TX, U.S.A., November 14, 1993
(Originally in English)

Q: Are we to consider that we are on this Earth to make a contribution as good human beings, as caring human beings, as loving creatures?

M: Yes, but that is a side effect. The most important is that we are happy within ourselves; we are satisfied. Only when you are satisfied, can you then satisfy others. Only when you know how to love yourself and you know how great you are, can you make others great or respect the greatness of other people. Therefore, all the Masters say: "Know yourself." "Seek you first the kingdom of God which is within you." That means your Self. "Seek the Holy Spirit which dwells within you." "Know you not you are the temple of God, and the Holy Spirit dwells within you." "Seek your Buddha nature, the highest Buddha Nature"; it's the same thing.

Aphorisms

~ The Supreme Master Ching Hai

Originally, a joyful heart is the fruit of practice.


Here in this world, the mind controls everything. The preconceived ideas, the prejudices, the collected data, control everything and make us forget our inborn Nature and that we are not these preconceived ideas. We are not to forget our judgment; we have to find our inborn Wisdom.
