COMPASSION AND EVERLASTING HAPPINESS

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

The most beautiful thing in the world is happiness;
By working joyfully,
there is nothing that cannot be achieved.
The most precious action in the world is creating good affinities;
By treating others well,
there is nothing that cannot be accomplished.
The most enduring power in the world is tolerance;
By getting along patiently,
there is nothing that cannot be completed.
The most resolute conduct is a vow;
By working with determination,
there is nothing that cannot be actualized.

── from Fo Guang Cai Gen Tan (Roots of Wisdom)


English translation: Miao Guang

Give others faith,
Give others joy,
Give others hope, and
Give others convenience.
Giving, can work endless wonders.

Know how to tolerate,
Know how to be peaceful,
Know how to be modest,
Know how to be respectful.
Knowing, can provide endless solutions.

── from Mindful Wisdom, Heartful Joy


English translation: Man Ho

Those worthy of being used will be successful.
Those willing to be used will be useful.
Those who cannot be used will hardly be successful.
Those who refuse to be used will hardly be useful.

── from The Everlasting Light
