Dalai Lama Quotes

40 Dalai Lama quotes:

"If one's life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation."

We must recognize the frequent contradictions between short-term benefit and long-term harm."
