10 LIFE LESSONS FROM THE DALAI LAMA:

  1. The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
  2. Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from our own actions.
  3. Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
  4. Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
  5. In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher.
  6. When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect towards others.
  7. Where ignorance is our master, there is not possibility for real peace.
  8. The purpose of all the major religious traditions is not to construct big temples on the outside, but to create temples of goodness and compassion inside, in our hearts.
  9. Compassion is the wish to see others free from suffering.
  10. Ultimately humanity is one, and this small planet is our only home. If we’re to protect this home of ours, each of us needs to experience a vivid sense of universal altruism and compassion.
