We have to try to be peaceful externally and internally, secretly; physically and mentally. - Longchen Nyingthig Vietnam

We have to try to be peaceful externally and internally, secretly; physically and mentally.

So, Peace and Peaceful group (laughed). It’s is a very beautiful title and even the meaning of that title is more beautiful and more important than anything else. I try to accomplish it, I try to be peaceful every day, every hour and every minute. At least, I’m trying. We have to try to be peaceful externally and internally, secretly; physically and mentally. That’s very important and this is the [correct] way to be peaceful. So, I think we should train to be peaceful both externally and internally together, all the time, because we don’t have that kind of skills – to be externally wrathful but internally peaceful. So, for us our outer look and inner look are the same. That is when you are externally aggressive, your mind is also very aggressive. Your mind is at anger very strongly. That’s a very powerful and negative karma. So, the essence of Dharma or the nature of Dharma is peace and the reason to practice Dharma is to achieve great peace in our mind; to be at peace without distractions. This is the meaning, this is the reason, and the essence of Dharma practice.
