The Religion of Human Kindness

The 14th Dalai Lama, who celebrated his 86th birthday on July 6, has dedicated his life to promoting the “religion of human kindness”.

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” -Dalai Lama

What if, instead of looking outside of ourselves, we all focused inward? What if, in listening to the sound of our own heartbeats and footsteps, we recognized that all humans who share this great planet of ours have hearts that beat and feet that move, just like ours? In delving inward and understanding what makes us profoundly human, we gain a better grasp on humanity itself. And what is more human than the simple act of kindness?

Make it your mission to spread love, kindness and positivity both to yourself and to everyone you encounter.
