The Baby Buddha


The Baby Buddha in You

“The baby Buddha has the capacity to understand, and to love, and to be peaceful. That capacity will grow together with the Buddha. You can help the baby Buddha in yourself grow by learning to understand and to love. The practices of learning to listen deeply and speaking with loving kindness are ways that can help grow the capacity to love and to understand, and that will help the baby Buddha in us grow quickly. Happiness will be the result of that kind of practice. If you notice that you are becoming more understanding and more loving every day, you know that the baby Buddha in you is growing.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh, “Living Love: Questions and Answers” in The Mindfulness Bell, Summer 2015
