B4Peace September – No Strangers Only Friends

The Peace Challenge for September is:

post a quotation that will bring peace to the world.

The Dalai Lama says:

There are no strangers – only friends you haven’t met yet.

He himself lives this truth and everyone he meets confirms that it feels like they are meeting an old friend. Each of us can follow his example and bring peace to the world everywhere we go.

Universal Religion

Dalai Lama Kindness

“If we practice religion properly, or genuinely, religion is not something outside but in our hearts. The essence of any religion is good heart. Sometimes I call love and compassion a universal religion. This is my religion. Complicated philosophy, this and that, sometimes create more trouble and problems. If these sophisticated philosophies are useful for the development of good heart, then good: use them fully. If these complicated philosophies or systems become an obstacle to a good heart then better to leave them. This is what I feel.”

— HH Dalai Lama

Kindness

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
