The deeply interconnected nature of our existence ~ 14th Dalai Lama http://justdharma.com/s/6u0ul  At a fundamental level, as human beings, we are all the same; each one of us aspires to happiness and each one of us does not wish to suffer.

Leading A Good Life ~ 14th Dalai Lama http://justdharma.com/s/bxzs7  Whether you believe in God or not does not matter so much, whether you believe in Buddha or not does not matter so much; as a Buddhist, whether you believe in reincarnation or not does not matter so much. You must lead a good life. And a good life does not mean just good food, good clothes, good shelter. These are not sufficient. A good motivation is what is needed: compassion, without dogmatism, without complicated…

Love ~ 14th Dalai Lama http://justdharma.com/s/b4mrq  Even more important than the warmth and affection we receive,is the warmth and affection we give.

More important than being loved, therefore, is to love.  – 14th Dalai Lama  source: https://www.facebook.com/DalaiLama

Instead, let us listen to the teachings…
