Dalai Lama

Treat each person as you would an old friend.

Dalai Lama
When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.
Dalai Lama

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.

Dalai Lama
Compassion and love constitute non-violence in action. They are the source of all spiritual qualities: forgiveness, tolerance, all the virtues. They give meaning to our activities and makes them constructive. There is nothing amazing about being rich or highly educated; only when the individual has a warm heart do these attributes become worthwhile.
Dalai Lama

The ultimate source of happiness is not money and power, but warm-heartedness

Dalai Lama
I try to treat whoever I meet as an old friend [with dignity, with honor].
Dalai Lama

In the past, destruction of your neighbour might have been considered a victory, but today we are all interdependent. We live in a global economy; we face problems like climate change that affect us all. The 7 billion human beings alive today belong to one human family.

Dalai Lama
The key to genuine happiness is in our hands. To think this way is to discover the essential values of kindness, brotherly love and altruism. The more clearly we see the benefits of these values, the more we will seek to reject anything that opposes them; in this way we will be able to bring about inner transformation.
Dalai Lama
