“The child of a great man need not be a great man; greatness is not transmitted through the generations. Every man ultimately makes or destroys his own legacy”

 

“Life would continue, with joys and sorrows, triumphs and tragedies, rising and falling like the waves of the sea. It is up to us to respond wisely, enjoy simple pleasures unshaken by the inevitable endless turmoil of the world”

 

“Only when there is undiluted compassion for everyone, even our worst enemies, is ego truly conquered”

 

“The point of existence is not to accumulate merit, but to attain wisdom”

Let me be there where….

The rich loves the poor…

The poor will never be disowned…

There are no atrocities against the vulnerable..

There is compassion for the downtrodden…

Are no fights among people of various religions…

Are no races behind wealth and power…

There is no hatred among the human kind…

There is no agony and suffering…

There are no tears of anguish and pain…

There is freedom of mind…

The desire doesn’t blinds the mind with delusion…

The mind is without fear and the head is held high…

The knowledge is free…

Words come out from the depth of truth…

There is pure love and friendship…

They never venture to leave me alone…

They try to love me and hold me secure by all means…

The world has not been broken up into fragments…

The human links are complete and unbreakable…

The world is full of joys but not sorrows…

The world is filled with assurance…

Love, T.
