If anyone tells you to be afraid,

Shrug them off and move along.

Do not be afraid.

Re: Happy Brain: Khachab Rinpoche Showcases Meditative Skill

Joy and happiness can have a wonderful effect on strength and healing.

Health and peace and joy are all so closely related; and pure heart leads to so much joy and wonder, as well as good health.

The ways of examining this are endless as the sky. It is like Indra's Jeweled Net.
