Dalai Lama Quotes

«We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.»
«I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.»
«I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness?»
«Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.»
«Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.»
«This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.»
«If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.»
Author: Dalai Lama | About: Faith, Religion| Keywords: particular, survive
«As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery? we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.»
«Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.»
Author: Dalai Lama | Keywords: arms, let go, let go of, values
«All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.»
