    There is a tree within us all, the inner tree of spirituality, and we need to nourish that trunk of strength by giving it attention every day.

    Material success and prosperity do not bring happiness, and wealth people may find themselves dissatisfied and without true friends.

    The Tibetan issue is not a new one ... still the Tibetan issue is not dying. Why? Not due to our weapons, not due to our violence, but due to our truth.

    The concept of violence is out of date. The destruction of your neighbor is actually the destruction of yourself.

    International relations seem to lack compassionate virtues. It is all geopolitical considerations and no moral principles.

    Everyone spent a few months in their mother's womb, but nobody remembers that. So one does not necessarily remember everything about one's existence.

    It's important to realize that we all have the same potential of good and bad, therefore, it's important to use the good potential to be a happier human being.

    With care and compassion, a warm heart and determination, difficult things can change and healthy, happy people can talk through their differences, reaching a compromise that all can life with.
