Like anyone else, I too have anger in me. However, I try to recall that anger is a destructive emotion. I remind myself that scientists now say that anger is bad for our health; it eats into our immune system. So, anger destroys our peace of mind and our physical health. We shouldn't welcome it or think of it as natural or as a friend.

Man braucht eine große Selbstkontrolle , und das was Wut auslösen kann , zu wiederstehen , gelingt nicht immer , wenn der äußeres Einfluss zu groß ist , dann zieht man sich besser zurück und geht in sich und lässt es verpuffen .

As a human being I acknowledge that my well-being depends on others and caring for others' well-being is a moral responsibility I take seriously. It's unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved on the basis of prayer or good wishes alone; what we need is to take action. Therefore, my first commitment is to contribute to human happiness the best I can

I am really very sorry for those who feel like the Dali Lama has said one word in this post about Religion. I think you who condemn a wonderful Holy man should understand exactly what it is you condemned.
Not one time in all of what I read did he mention Religion. Alls he said was that he was going to try and make people happy and I for one don't know what making people happy would hurt this world.

Depression seems to be related to fear, anger and frustration. When you're in a bad mood, even if you meet with your friends, you don't take pleasure in their company. But when you're in a good mood, even if things go wrong, you can cope with them without difficulty. This is why putting yourself in a good mood, making a point of developing a sense of loving kindness gives you greater inner strength.

We are all the same as human beings, we all want to lead a happy life. We can think of every day as a new day. When we wake up we can remind ourselves - ‘I need to be happy, I need to have warm feelings towards others. This builds self-confidence, honesty, transparency, which leads to trust. And trust is the basis of friendship. We are social animals and we need friends. This is a source of happiness I wish to share.

+Nicoleta Roxana Suseanu​ Religions should never be debated . Yes that was a referral to a Christian doctrine. We are loved and up higher than angels. And thanks for the referral from Psalms 82: 6, however like most people you didn't read the whole thing , you just made a quotation out of what you wanted to read. We are all the children of God, however he made the 10 commandments so that we will look to him and ask him for what we need its called prayer. When we know we done wrong he's told us to confess and repent. As God, he doesn't have to do any of these things because he is without sin. So you want to check yourself on that. No man is a god. No man is holy. No man is pure. We are only made the righteousness of God by Him. He made the first man from the dirt and blew into him the breath of life and so we are all made and formed in His image.
I like the way you call Buddhism the most tolerant of the religions. There is no comparison, although the Christian and the Buddhist religion are similar in a lot of ways , in that they both follow an admired teacher once living now dead. The difference being the Christian teacher rose again like he said he would from the dead and has promised to return and at that time all people will know because all will see him and every knee will bow and every mouth for claim the Jesus Christ is Lord. There is nothing supernatural about Buddhism.

hyeon su Choi kindly find yourself something else to do besides constantly being the cheerleader for whatever comments are made, it's childishly annoying.

Still throwing ahead the past is never a solution but just one part of the unsolved PERSONAL problem! U're living NOW, in the present, NOT yesterday and MAYBE tomorrow! So what the past is changing at Ur NOW? Absolutely nothing! So what the fuck u've got to loose energies for this when u should put them to building up a good future?

Introduction
Three Main Commitments of His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Firstly, on the level of a human being, His Holiness’ first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. All human beings are the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering. Even people who do not believe in religion recognize the importance of these human values in making their life happier. His Holiness refers to these human values as secular ethics. He remains committed to talk about the importance of these human values and shares them with everyone he meets.

Secondly, on the level of a religious practitioner, His Holiness’ second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding among the world’s major religious traditions. Despite philosophical differences, all major world religions have the same potential to create good human beings. It is therefore important for all religious traditions to respect one another and recognize the value of each other’s respective traditions. As far as one truth, one religion is concerned, this is relevant on an individual level. However, for the community at large, several truths, several religions are necessary.

Thirdly, His Holiness is a Tibetan and carries the name of the ‘Dalai Lama’. Tibetans place their trust in him. Therefore, his third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. His Holiness’ has a responsibility to act as the free spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice. As far as this third commitment is concerned, it will cease to exist once a mutually beneficial solution is reached between the Tibetans and Chinese.

However, His Holiness will carry on with the first two commitments till his last breath.
