Find Peace of Mind

Prayers For Peace

If we are to have peace in the world today, we need to find it first within our own hearts and minds.

If we are to have peace in the world today, we need to find it first within our own hearts and minds. Just as the only way to solve our own problems is to find inner peace, so the only way to help others to solve theirs is to encourage them to engage in spiritual practice and discover their own inner peace. This way of benefiting others is by far the best; yet we can do this effectively only if we first work on our own mind. There is little benefit in telling people how important it is to overcome their delusions, or negative minds, if we are unable to control our own. However, if through training our mind we succeed in pacifying – or even completely eliminating – our own anger, for example, we can certainly help others to control theirs. Then our advice will not be mere words, but will have behind it the power of personal experience.
