Our Prime Purpose

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

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

If you are motivated by a wish to help on the basis of kindness, compassion and respect, then you can do any kind of work, in any field, and function more effectively with less fear or worry, not being afraid of what others think or whether you will ultimately reach your goal.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Common purpose

I don’t like formality. There’s no formality when we’re born and none when we die. In between we should treat each other as brothers and sisters because we all want to live a happy life. This is our common purpose and our right.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

The future is in our hand!

What’s past is past, nothing can change that. But the future can be different if we choose to make it so. We have to cultivate a vision of a happier, more peaceful future and make the effort now to bring it about. This is no time for complacency, hope lies in the action we take.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
