Dalai Lama Quote
“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.”
"A Talk to Western Buddhists" p. 89

“We know our cause is just. Because violence can only breed more violence and suffering, our struggle must remain nonviolent and free of hatred. We are trying to end the suffering of our people, not to inflict suffering on others.”
