Dalai Lama

Even if it is not realized, at least there will be no regret." Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama

"As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.

"Self-discipline, although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions, should be a defensive measure. At least we will be able to prevent the advent of negative conduct dominated by negative emotion. That is 'shila', or moral ethics. Once we develop this by familiarizing ourselves with it, along with mindfulness and conscientiousness, eventually that pattern and way of life will become a part of our own life." Dalai Lama

Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness" Dalai Lama

Analysis    German Actress   

Dalai Lama

"When we are young and again when we are old, we depend heavily on the affection of others.

"I find that because of modern technological evolution and our global economy, and as a result of the great increase in population, our world has greatly changed: it has become much smaller.

Compassion

And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation." Dalai Lama
