The Dalai Lama has inspired countless millions in his lifetime.
Through acts of service, patience, love, and acceptance, he has endeared himself to nearly every corner of the world.
He’s an author, spiritual leader, Nobel Prize winner, and the supreme political figure for a conquered country (Tibet).
There’s no doubt this guy has some serious accomplishments under his belt!
To honor his legacy and wisdom, I compiled a list of quotes from him; hopefully it makes your day a little brighter.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.
Of course, when I say that human nature is gentleness, it is not 100 percent so. Every human being has that nature, but there are many people acting against their nature, being false.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
Generally speaking, if a human being never shows anger, then I think something’s wrong. He’s not right in the brain.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.
