Buddhist Quote of the Day: 9/11 Quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh

posted by Ethan Nichtern

Remembering September 11th today. A 9/11 Quote for us to meditate upon:

Aware of the suffering created by fanaticism and intolerance, we are determined not to be idolatrous about or bound to any doctrine, theory, or ideology, even Buddhist ones. Buddhist teachings are guiding means to help us learn to look deeply and to develop our understanding and compassion. They are not doctrines to fight, kill, or die for.”
