We need cooperation based on trust and self-confidence to create an open, compassionate, harmonious society.
There needs to be a systematic approach to introducing inner values, a warm-hearted concern for all human beings, into education.
Compassion is a source of happiness, while self-centerdness can lead ultimately to violence.

Warm-heartedness and concern for others’ well-being are a condition for happiness, whether you are religious or not.
Non-violence is when one has the chance to harm another but resists from doing so, this is genuine non-violence.
The quality of our actions, whether they are positive or negative, depends on our motivation. This is why we have to transform our minds.
We need to consider how our actions affect wildlife and the environment, and how they are likely to affect others.

I often tease young people about their concern for how they look; more important is inner beauty - compassion, affection and respect.
Wherever I go I try to hold discussions with members of other religious traditions, because it is important to get to know about them.
The more we are concerned for the well-being of others, the closer we will feel to each other.

A meaningful life isn't about acquiring money and other facilities; it’s about dedicating your life to helping others as much as you can.
As a human being, I believe each one of us should have some concern for others and for the planet.
It is always helpful to remain honest and truthful in the face of difficulty.
In addition to modern education, there is a need to learn how to achieve inner peace.
Pay more attention to compassion and you’ll find you’re happier. It’s that practical and simple.
