The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso who is a spiritual leader of Tibet, born on 6 July 1935. Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet.
Current Dalai Lama has been in news several times for his teaching on Love, Happiness, and Compassion. He has been also actively tweeting his powerful thoughts. Let’s start the month with his esoteric thoughts.
For the people who think patience as weakness.
Many people think that patience is a sign of weakness. I think this is a mistake. It is anger that is a sign of weakness, whereas patience is a sign of strength.

Something about Inner Values.
Developing inner values is much like physical exercise. The more we train our abilities, the stronger they become. The difference is that, unlike the body, when it comes to training the mind, there is no limit to how far we can go.

Never neglect Compassion over Religion.
I really feel that some people neglect and overlook compassion because they associate it with religion. Of course, everyone is free to choose whether they pay religion any regard, but to neglect compassion is a mistake because it is the source of our own well-being.

We can change our minds. We don’t have to give in to anger and hatred. Since compassion and anger cannot co-exist, the more we cultivate compassion the more our anger will be reduced.

Live a Happy Life.
We all want to live a happy life, which is our right, and the key to doing so is developing compassion for others.
