Leading a Good Life – Words from a Teacher

Leading a Good Life ~ 14th Dalai Lama

Whether you believe in God or not does not matter so much,

whether you believe in Buddha or not does not matter so much;

as a Buddhist, whether you believe in reincarnation or not does not matter so much.

You must lead a good life.

And a good life does not mean just good food, good clothes, good shelter.

These are not sufficient.

A good motivation is what is needed:

compassion, without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy;

just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters

and respecting their rights and human dignity.

14th Dalai Lama from the book Kindness, Clarity, and Insight
