Citizen of the World

*        *        *        *

“To a Buddhist there is no far or near,
no enemy or foreigner, no renegade or untouchable,
since universal love realized through understanding
has established the brotherhood of all living beings.

A real Buddhist is a citizen of the world;
regarding the whole world as his motherland
and all as his brothers and sisters.”

-Ven. Narada in his work Buddhism in a Nutshell
