I am not a Buddhist but I view the teachings of some monks as practical, inspiring guiding principles. On Facebook, I follow zen master and peace and human rights activist Thich Nhat Hanh because of his inspirational words. My most favourite of all is the video below.
“The most helpful thing for you to do is to be a happy human being… Everything you do for yourself to remain happy, solid and fresh is helping all of us.”
A work in progress.
