Dalai Lama: words to live by. ❤

  1. Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
  2. Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
  3. Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
  4. Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
  5. My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
  6. 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.
  7. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
  8. Sleep is the best meditation.
  9. Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
  10. The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
