05 Feb Happiness and Goodness
”Our world is a smaller place today. We travel around a lot. We do meet each other, we do marry each other, and we make friends with each other. That’s a wonderful time for our world where, as the world gets smaller, we get to know each other better. Maybe with that friendship, knowledge and everything, we can overcome many of the difficulties which separate our nations, religions and peoples.”
This is how Ajahn Brahmavamso, the world renowned meditation teacher from Perth, Australia summed up current trends, at the end of an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times. When I met him around 8 p.m., he had just concluded a full-day meditation retreat. Yet he was fresh and most willing to talk. Greeting me with his charming smile, this frank and amiable personality spoke, joked and laughed during our half-hour chat.
Goodness, meditation, happiness…all such important concepts yet ones we give relatively little time to contemplate.
