"Compassion Is Not Religious Business, It Is Human Business"

"My religion is very simple, my religion is kindness....I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness...I am a simple Buddhist monk....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
