If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

Milarepa

What's more important is not the enormous task to face,

but the greatness of Courage.

Peace

Peace of heart, a quiet mind, are rooted in simpathy and compassion.

In this we find an higher level of sensibility and sentiment.

listen to the wind,

What makes Tibet special?

E-mail Print PDF

I defend the Tibetan cause because I wish to serve humanity.  In the 19th century, we were still a peace-loving nation endowed with a unique culture.  If we were rather backwards in material terms, spiritually speaking we were quite prosperous.  We are Buddhists, and the form of Buddhism that we practice is one of the most complete.  Furthermore, we have kept it really alive over the centuries.  It is not only as a Tibetan that I consider it vital to ensure the survival of this culture and of this nation; it is simply as a human being who hopes they can make a contribution to the world as a whole.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama
