Happiness and the words of Thich Nhat Hanh

Happiness and the words of Thich Nhat Hanh

“If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese born Buddhist monk with a long history of peace activism and has brought Buddhist teachings to a wide Western audience.  I link below to a piece in the Ecologist by Thich Nhat Hanh entitled, Thich Nhat Hanh: happiness is possible without simply consuming all the time.  In the piece he discusses how our western consumer based lifestyle can be an impediment to happiness and how changing this can help, give it a read.  As always, have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
