Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama

a spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.More Dalai Lama quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Those who like myself, consider themselves to be followers of Buddha, should practice as much as we can. To followers of other religious traditions, I would like to say, 'Please practice your own religion seriously and sincerely.' And to non-believers, I request you to try to be warm-hearted. I ask this of you because these mental attitudes actually bring us happiness.More Dalai Lama quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of inner peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion and elimination of ignorance, selfishness and greed.More Dalai Lama quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the past, destruction of your neighbour might have been considered a victory, but today we are all interdependent. We live in a global economy; we face problems like climate change that affect us all. The 7 billion human beings alive today belong to one human family. In the context that others' interests are in our interest and our interest is in their interest, the use of force is self-destructive.More Dalai Lama quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are differences between us. But it doesn't make sense to emphasize that, because my future and yours is connected with everyone else's. So we have to take seriously our concern for all of humanity. When we focus on our individuality, humanity inevitably suffers. And once humanity suffers, each one of us will also suffer.More Dalai Lama quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
