A little bit of inspiration for you today with these 13 Motivational Dalai Lama Quotes. I’ve been reading his book “The Art of Happiness” and it was so refreshing to hear that in his mind, the point of life is to live with happiness!

When you look at what really makes you happy and brings you satisfaction, only then can you put our attention on others and be of service to them. Then your live gets a higher purpose. Beautiful!

The Dalai Lama is the world’s foremost Buddhist leader. He travels extensively, speaking in favor of kindness and compassion, respect for the environment and, above all, world peace.

 

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. and if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them

Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk

Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost

Happiness is not something ready made it comes from your own actions

Every day, think as you wake up: today i am fortunate to be alive, i have a precious human life, i am not going to waste it

The goal is not to be better than the other man,  but your previous self

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it

Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day

Consider carefully: what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?

As you breathe in, cherish yourself. as you breathe out, cherish all beings

Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality

Neither a space station nor an enlightened mind can be realized in a day
