A Quote by Dalai Lama

It is... very helpful to think of adversity not so much as a threat to our peace of mind but rather as the very means by which patience is attained.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on peace

in

If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another. If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe. If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things, help another to better understand. If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on universal responsibility


 I believe that to meet the challenges of our times,
 human beings will have to develop
 a greater sense of universal responsibility.

Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself,
one's own family or nation, but for the benefit
of all humankind.

Universal responsibility is the key to human survival.
It is the best foundation for world peace.

A Quote by Dalai Lama

... Our individual well-being is intimately connected both with that of all others and with the environment within which we live.... Our every action, our every deed, word, and thought, no matter how slight or inconsequential it may seem, has an implication not only for ourselves, but for all others, too.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on spirituality, buddism, religion, oneness, one, unity, self actualization, self empowerment, knowledge, and wisdom

There are many religions seeking to bring comfort and happiness to humanity, just as there are many treatments for a particular disease. All religions endeavor to help living beings avoid misery and find happiness. Although we may prefer one religious perspective to another, there is a much stronger case for unity, stemming from common desires of the human heart. Each religion works to lessen suffering and contribute to the world; conversion is not the point. I do not think about converting others to Buddhism or merely furthering the Buddhist cause. Instead, I try to think of how I as a Buddhist can contribute to the happiness of all living beings.
