Inner Peace Is The Key For World Peace “Inner peace is the key for world peace. You cannot have world peace with individuals who are boiling from the inside ready to explode. If such people are at the helm of affairs then not only the person explodes, but the countries and communities explode.”
Inner Peace as a Contribution to Human Flourishing: A New Scale Developed from Ancient Wisdom “Although philosophers and theologians have emphasized the centrality of inner peace for the good life, this concept has not generally been included in research on human flourishing.

Basic Meditation Technique for Inner Peace “The sharing of loving kindness is something we can do every day, both before and after daily meditation.
