a Shining Example
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Taipei, 7-day
We ought to practice spiritually and set a shining example for the world. We shouldn't blame society for being chaotic, or blame others for being bad. Instead, we should blame ourselves for failing to set a shining, glorious example. So we should first cultivate ourselves and then other people will follow us. Begin with yourself first instead of waiting for others to do it. That's why the Chinese say: First cultivate yourself and manage your family before going on to govern the country and bringing peace to the whole world. This is indeed the truth!
