AS HUMAN BEINGS WE ALL WANT TO BE HAPPY AND FREE FROM MISERY.
WE HAVE LEARNED THAT THE KEY TO HAPPINESS IS INNER PEACE.
THE GREATEST OBSTACLES TO INNER PEACE ARE DISTURBING EMOTIONS
SUCH AS ANGER AND ATTACHMENT, FEAR AND SUSPICION,
WHILE LOVE AND COMPASSION, A SENSE OF UNIVERSAL RESPONSIBILITY
ARE THE SOURCES OF PEACE AND HAPPINESS.
