THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE

by Venerable Master Hsing Yun (1927 - , Fo Guang Shan)
English translation: Man Ho, Miao Guang, and Zhi Yue

The happiest people have peace of light.
The wisest people are full of enthusiasm.*

Every experience is a footstep into the future.
Every failure or success is a glimpse into the future.*

The key to solving challenges
is to strive to overcome difficulties.
The key to happiness
is to sincerely give others happiness.

Always speak kind and gentle words.
Always do something to benefit others.
Always think well and give others our blessings.
Always take the path that leads to a better world.

The purpose of speaking
is not to show off, but to inspire others.
The purpose of working
is not for personal investment, but to benefit society.

── from Fo Guang Cai Gen Tan
