Janet, a Front Porch Forum member in Burlington, shared this quote yesterday…
“The next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha will take the form of a community; a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
I see that it’s all over the internet, but I can’t easily find the original source. I seem to recall hearing Thich Nhat Hanh in an overheated and overflowing UVM gymnasium a decade ago. Not sure why memories from age 12 are crystal clear, but those from 32 are so foggy.
