Teachings On Love

“Do not be afraid to love.

Without love, life is impossible. We have to learn the art of loving.

Love by the way you walk, the way you sit, the way you eat. Learn to love yourself and others properly.

The Buddah offers us light to shine on the nature of our love. He offers us very concrete ways to practise living our daily lives so love becomes something delightful.

The world very much needs love.

We have to help the next Buddah, Maitreya, the Buddah of love, come to be. I am more and more convinced that the next Buddah may not be just one person, but he may be a community, a community of love.

We need to support each other to build a community where love is something tangible. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth.  

We have everything except love.

We have to renew our way of loving.

We have to really learn to love.

The well being of the world depends on us, on the way we live our daily lives, on the way we take care of the world, and on the way we love.”

 – Thich Nhat Hanh
