Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

Fear and anxiety easily give way to anger and violence. The opposite of fear is trust, which, related to warm-heartedness, boosts our self-confidence. Compassion also reduces fear, reflecting as it does a concern for others’ well-being. This is what really attracts friends.

Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

As a human being I am committed to trying to share with others that we are social creatures, because of which, whether we are religious believers or not, we need a sense of concern for others’ well-being.

Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

Ours is a globalized world. Climate change affects us all; no one can hide from it. The global economy means we need to think of other people as members of one global family. This is why we need humane values based on common sense and common experience in our education systems.

Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

I belong to the 20th century generation, while many of you belong to the 21st century. What’s past is past, we can’t change it, but we can learn from it. What is clear is that the future of humanity is in our hands.

Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

Science and technology has brought much development, and yet we still face many man-made problems. We are social animals. We depend on the community in which we live. Therefore, we need a sense of global responsibility, because the well-being of humanity is our own well-being.

Words of Wisdom from The Dalai Lama

When you have peace of mind, it’s easier to cope with problems. Real change will come about not as a result of prayer, but of using intelligence and taking action.
