100 words of peace by Buddhist Bhikshuni Ven. Hong Yang

100 Words of peace by Buddhist Bhikshuni Ven. Hong Yang:  Peace in this world is not a group effort but the effort by one then another and another; collectively this is the power of one to many from many to one.  Buddhism has 2 schools: Theravada which focuses on reaching the level of an Arhat who is free of suffering by becoming monks staying in forests and meditating and the Mahayana whose monks and nuns seek to go out in the world practicing the bodhisattva path enlightening themselves as well as others.  Practice, study, and generosity keeps a peaceful community.
