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.

I often ask myself what is the purpose of our lives and I conclude that life's purpose is to be happy. We have no guarantee what will happen in the future, but we live in hope. That's what keeps us going.

Thank you His Holiness. The man is always looking for love and happiness. If it happens, people want more and more, be rich. Everyone thinks everyone else happy or they blame everyone else if I'm not happy. Why everyone says that we should be satisfied with the little things? It's easy, give advice and kind words.

Karma means action and action motivated by compassion is good. To complain that what happens to you is just the result of your karma is lazy. Instead, confidently recalling the advice that, "You are your own master," you can change what happens by taking action.

If you live your life honestly and truthfully, you'll be open and transparent, which leads to trust. And trust leads to friendship. This is something worth taking into account, that the basis of friendship is trust not money and warm-heartedness is essential if we are to live happy lives.

Happiness and suffering can be divided into two main categories: mental and physical. Of the two, it’s the mind that exerts the greatest influence over us. So long as we’re not ill or lacking basic necessities, and our body is content, we virtually ignore it. The mind, however, registers everything that happens to us, no matter how small. Therefore, we should focus our efforts on bringing about mental peace.

We all have a responsibility to ensure the welfare of humanity, to try to make this a happier more peaceful world. But we need to find ways to promote an acceptable, universal approach to ethics or human values. Open hearts encourage a sense of security and trust that is the basis of genuine friendship, which is to everyone's benefit.

Conflicts arise when we dwell too much on secondary differences between us: differences of nationality, faith, whether we are rich or poor, educated or uneducated. What 's more helpful to remember instead is that we are all human beings and from that point of view we're all the same.

the struggle is age old, people seem as they might be institutionally fearful of people that do not look as they do, i think it is a learned behavior. i was taught no bias, i live long hours trying to wrap my head around this confused world with all their separateness, i love them all already, its just a mess

We face many problems, many of them man-made. It is our responsibility to solve them. We need to use our human intelligence to do this. No one seeks out suffering; everyone just wants to be happy. But out of short-sightedness we hatch plans that bring us trouble. We need to find human solutions. We need to consider the needs of coming generations.

Как часто, в жизни ошибаясь, теряем тех, кем дорожим. Чужим понравиться стараясь, порой от ближнего бежим. Возносим тех, кто нас не стоит, а самых верных предаём. Кто нас так любит, обижаем, а сами извенений ждём.
Омар Хайям.
