When you entertain evil thoughts like hostility and hatred, there is no joy in your heart, and you are a nuisance to others. On the other hand, if you develop kindness, patience, and understanding, then the whole atmosphere changes.
— His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
It seems to me that Western science and Eastern philosophy can join together to create a really complete and full-fledged human being. It is only this way that man will emerge strengthened from his condition to become whole. What in fact interests me is what is beyond matter and awareness, what really is important and what makes us what we are.
— Dalai Lama
