"Unlearning fear liberates natural compassion. Leaders driven by love will bring sustainability and healing to the business, as well as for themselves. When you come from a place of love, you will go deep and not be driven by external competition. Then you don't need to seek for the market. It will find you." N.K. Chaudhary, founder and CEO Jaipur Rugs, in 'The Healing Organization' by Raj Sisodia and Michael J. Gelb
The Four Noble Truths "I teach suffering, its origin, cessation and path. That's all I teach", declared the Buddha 2500 years ago. The Four Noble Truths contain the essence of the Buddha's teachings. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his meditation under the bodhi tree. The truth of suffering (Dukkha) The truth of the origin of suffering (Samudāya) The truth of the cessation of suffering (Nirodha) The truth of the path to the cessation of suffering (Magga) The Buddha is often compared to a physician. In the first two Noble Truths he diagnosed the problem (suffering) and identified its cause. The third Noble Truth is the realisation that there is a cure. The fourth Noble Truth, in which the Buddha set out the Eightfold Path, is the prescription, the way to achieve a release from suffering." - The Buddha's Teachings
"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." Bible - Corinthians 13
"For a long time we have put money before love and we know that. A system that can not understand the genesis of a crisis lacks the power with which to end it. Living responsibly in these times demands courage, strength and enthusiasm for what’s possible. It is not enough to be the change, now we must do the change ... we want to see in the world. Marianne Williamson - author 'A Return to Love'
