To achieve justice without losing compassion, what’s important is to avoid doing harm. Helping sentient beings can be a source of great satisfaction. All of us, animals as well, have basic rights that we need to protect.

When we think about fear, there are two types, legitimate fear for which there is some valid basis and fear that is rooted in our mental projections. There’s a Tibetan saying that if you let your mind run wild, you’ll see a robber in an empty house.

When you think of others, you no longer think only of yourself. When we face problems, we can use our intelligence to overcome them. We have to tell ourselves, ‘I’m a human being and I’m not alone’. We need never feel hopeless.

The root of peace of mind is compassion. As soon as most of us are born our mothers take care of us and give us our first lessons in compassion. Without this we would not survive. This is how our life begins.

As a Buddhist monk, I’m dedicated to promoting inter-religious harmony. All religions accept the value of warm-heartedness. Some believe in God; others have faith in karma. When I hear about fighting among religious people, I feel very sad—as if medicine has become poison.

Now we have to think about the future without copying the past. We have to take a broader perspective, not only concerning ourselves with my nation, my community and so on. We have to think about the whole of humanity; the oneness of all human beings.

Generally speaking, whether or not technology can be thought of as good or bad depends on how it is used. We human beings should not be slaves to technology or machines. We should be in charge.

The basic orientation of our hearts needs to be altruistic. The peace of mind that results from this brings us physical comfort too. We have better health and sounder sleep, and we can make the best use of our inner resources.

As soon as I wake every morning, I remind myself that all human beings are the same as me—we all want to be happy. I resolve to use my life to ensure that other beings are happy. It’s compassion that brings about peace of mind, not anger and hatred.

We are all here on this planet, as tourists, as it were. None of us can live here forever. The longest we might live is a hundred years. So while we are here we should try to have a good heart and to make something positive and useful of our lives.

Despite different cultures and different political and economic systems, we’re all basically the same. The more people I meet, the stronger my conviction becomes that the oneness of humanity, founded on understanding and respect, is a realistic and viable basis for our conduct.

How we live from day to day affects our future. Warm-heartedness is the key factor. I think about it always because it’s warm-heartedness that brings us peace of mind.

Love can be defined as a wish that others be happy; compassion is the wish that they be free from suffering. If you cultivate love and compassion within yourself, it will ensure happiness, good health and peace of mind.

As we come to recognize the oneness of humanity, our motivation to find peace will grow stronger. Sisters and brothers must share each other’s suffering. Mutual respect, trust, and concern for one another’s welfare is our best hope for lasting world peace. #PeaceDayChallenge
