Once, a king visited the Buddha and was
astonished to see how calm and happy His monks were. So he asked,
"Venerable Sir, the monks of other gurus constantly look as if they're in
pain. But your monks, Sir, radiate such peace and happiness. Tell me, how do
they did it?"
The Buddha's answer is one of the most beautiful things
I've ever read. He said, "They have no regrets about the past. They have
no worries about the future. They are at peace with the present."
That's it. The whole secret of daily happiness is in
these three simple sentences. It's so profoundly beautiful.
