Words to live by!

"There are many religions seeking to bring comfort and happiness to humanity, just as 

there are many treatments for a particular disease. All religions endeavor to help 

living beings avoid misery and find happiness. Although we may prefer one religious 

perspective to another, there is a much stronger case for unity, stemming from 

common desires of the human heart. Each religion works to lessen suffering and 

contribute to the world; conversion is not the point. I do not think about converting 

others to Buddhism or merely furthering the Buddhist cause. Instead, I try to think of 

how I as a Buddhist can contribute to the happiness of all living beings." 

- The Dalai Lama
