A perenial message
- In the book I have been reading, the Dalai Lama writes about being
wisely selfish - being altruistic, as a way to happiness.
"My earnest request is that you practice loving kindness whether you
believe in a religion of not." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Excerpt from "How to Practice - The Way to a Meaningful LIfe" by His
Holiness the Dalai Lama.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" - the Christ
"If we can offer happiness to someone lovingly and sincerely, then
that person will have only goodwill toward us. So from happiness we
get peace, and from peace we get happiness. The two are inseparable."
From the preface to "Wings of Joy" by Sri Chinmoy.
