"Mind Matters, Love Conquers"

Theme of The 4th Dhamma Youth Camp 1996 - Reflections
* When a man speaks or acts with good intention, then happiness follows him like his shadow that never leaves him.
* From meditation, wisdom arises; without meditation, wisdom wanes.
* It is good to train the wandering mind. A mind under control brings great happiness.
* He whose mind does not flutter by contact with worldly contingencies, sorrowless, stainless and secure - this is the Highest Blessing.
* Hatred is never appeased by hatred; it is appeased by Love. This is an Eternal Law.
* Just as a mother would protect her only child even at the risk of her own life, even so let one cultivate a boundless heart towards all beings.
* a mind composed, well-concentrated, purified and undefiled, full of kindness towards all beings - this is the Way that leads to the Highest.
* See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
* A man is noble if he injures any living creature.
The noble man is gentle to all living creatures.
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
