“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. “
Make sure to let your love flow and show, today and every day. Taking care of your loved ones, friends and the world at large will all serve to make your own heart happier and healthier. Practice kindness and it becomes you.
Wishing you all a happy Valentine’s day. Remember the darker the chocolate the better it is for your heart (and the very darkest are generally vegan!). Remember, also, the redder the wine, the better for your circulation. No wonder these both make great Valentine’s Day treats.
That Dalai Lama quote may be the best explanation of religion I’ve ever heard. THANKS for posting that!
Here’s another quote of the Dalai Lama’s that I often think about… “All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness … the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.”
Love, compassion and forgiveness… ‘Works for me!
I love both of those Dalai Lama quotes. I wish that the world would embrace his philosophy……….”what a wonderful world it would be……” Louis Armstrong.
