Without technology humanity has no future, but we have to be careful that we don’t become so mechanised that we lose our human feelings.
Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that.
It’s unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved only on the basis of prayer, what we need is to take action.
Being aware of a single shortcoming within yourself is far more useful than being aware of a thousand in someone else.
A person who practices compassion and forgiveness has great inner strength, whereas aggression is usually a sign of weakness.
More important than being loved is to love.
Most of our problems are related to the mind, so we have to work to reduce our destructive emotions.
We cannot change the past, but we can reshape the future. Young people have the opportunity to create a happier, better future
If you make others happy, you’ll be happy. If you make others unhappy, you’ll be miserable.
The purpose of religion is not building grand temples but cultivating positive human qualities like tolerance, generosity and love.
When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity.
A meaningful life isn't about acquiring money and other facilities; it’s about dedicating your life to helping others as much as you can.
I always try to share with others the idea that in order to become compassionate it is not necessary to become religious.
Anger destroys our peace of mind and causes trouble. It also hampers our ability to function properly.
The quality of our actions, whether they are positive or negative, depends on our motivation. This is why we have to transform our minds.
Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our daily lives.
To utilize our intelligence correctly a calm mind is very important.
Tolerance is always important, it helps us overcome difficulties. Without it, small things irritate us and we overreact.
I often tease young people about their concern for how they look; more important is inner beauty - compassion, affection and respect.
