I have never seen them satisfied

Hundreds of stupid flies gather
On a piece of rotten meat,
Enjoying, they think, a delicious feast.
This image fits with the song
Of the myriads of foolish living beings
Who seek happiness in superficial pleasures;
In countless ways they try,
Yet I have never seen them satisfied.

The XIV Dalai Lama

We have a mind

We don’t need more money,
we don’t need greater success or fame,
we don’t need the perfect body or even the perfect mate—right now.

At this very moment,
we have a mind,
which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Nature of Mind

Choose to be optimistic,
it feels better.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Knowledge

Know the rules well,
so you can break them effectively.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Love

Love is the absence of judgment.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Tolerance

In the practice of tolerance,
one’s enemy is the best teacher.


The XIV Dalai Lama
