The Real Disarmament

Words of Wisdom
How 1 Minute a Day can Increase Your Joy!
Towards Global Peace

“Politicians and world leaders are trying their best to achieve arms control and so forth, and this is very useful. At the same time, we who have certain beliefs have a duty and responsibility to control our own bad thoughts. This is the real disarmament, our own arms control. With inner peace and full control of bad thoughts, external control is not particularly significant. Without inner control, no matter what steps are taken, external efforts will not make much difference.”
