Happy Sunday!

My religion is very simple.
My religion is kindness.
-Dalai Lama

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others.
And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
-Dalai Lama

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
-Dalai Lama

This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
-Dalai Lama

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not,
there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.
-Dalai Lama
