Frans Goetghebeur

Former Chairman of the European Buddhist Union

I remember to Trust in oneself, in others, in the Other
without any resistance,

I keep generous openness to the unknown,
the eternal evidence of truth at any instant,

I remember silence recognized as the origin of all noises...
Emptiness as the essence of all disturbances...
Impermanence as the characteristic of all ups and downs...
Goodness as the ultimate nature of all living beings

And last but not least,
I revolt against all forms of injustice
but without anger.

And so I ask you:
In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?
