Just one moral duty:

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.
Etty Hillesum (
“Buddha taught that in its true nature, the mind is empty, cognizant, and uncontained. When this mind if free of ignorance, hatred, desire, and all the misconceptions, afflictions, and emotions that derive from them, the mind becomes clear, pure light, pristine awareness and peace. That enlightened state is there, in all of us from beginningless time.” The Dalai Lama
