As Honorable Thich Giac Chinh has said, the change we are witnessing will always be a change, the moment the change is perceived, that is the moment the change takes on another form. Real change—big change—takes years, and once you notice the change in yourself, right in the moment of awareness, an idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.

Being deeply learned and skilled, being well trained and using well-spoken words: this is good luck. A disciplined mind brings happiness. All experiences are preceded by mind, having mind as their master, created by mind.


We will develop and cultivate the liberation of mind by lovingkindness, make it our vehicle, make it our basis, stabilize it, exercise ourselves in it, and fully perfect it.

"In all journeys, the journey of self-realization is a great journey for each of us."

Thich Giac Chinh
