It is far better seek inner peace near home than to go far away to burn incense and chant. There is no need to travel the world to find peace. Peace is found within the borders of the mind, no passport required. You can waste a lot of time and money by ignoring or not knowing this. Tranquility is not based on the number of retreats that you go to or the number of lectures you listen to. It is based on what you do. You already have a map. You do not need one hundred maps.
