Dalai Lama
Compassion in Action
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.
Love is the absence of judgment.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your actions will be.
Love and compassion are the true religions to me. But to develop these, we do not need to believe in any religion.
Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways.
