A monk is a religious man living a life of vows – typically poverty and obedience.
A Trappist monk takes this to extremes with a vow of silence 🤐
Buddhist monks live a simple life of prayer and meditation.
So what wise words can we learn from monks: here are a few:
- Happiness is a journey not the destination.
- Give even if you only have a little.
- The root of suffering is desire.
- What we think, we become.
- Nothing remains without change.
- Life is suffering.
