MANTRA FOR LIVING: from the DALAI LAMA (A short Buddhist outlook on life)

  1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

  2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

  3. Follow the 3 R’s : RESPECT FOR SELF, RESPECT FOR OTHERS, AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL YOUR ACTIONS.

  4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

  5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

  6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

  7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

  8. Spend some time alone everyday.

  9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

  10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

  11. Live a good honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

  12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

  13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
