A friend sent this quote today after the Dalai Lhama had visited Cambridge and I wanted to share it.
” Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.
Without them, humanity cannot survive.
If you want others to be happy practice compassion. If you want to be happy practice compassion.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
We can live without religion and medication, but we cannot survive without human affection.
In the practice of tolerance one’s enemy is the best teacher.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
Sleep is the best meditation”.
