The Dalai Lama: Ocean of Wisdom
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. – Dalai Lama
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. – Dalai Lama
What was his unique style or personality that set him apart from everyone else?
Compassionate * Peaceful * Wisdom
Self-discipline, although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions, should be a defensive measure. At least we will be able to prevent the advent of negative conduct dominated by negative emotion. That is ‘shila’, or moral ethics. Once we develop this by familiarizing ourselves with it, along with mindfulness and conscientiousness, eventually that pattern and way of life will become a part of our own life.” – Dalai Lama
“The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s own reason and critical analysis.” – Dalai Lama0
