His Holiness The Fourteenth Dalai Lama

“If things and events did not have the nature of changing from moment to moment, we would be unable to explain how transformation takes place over time. When we reduce vast passages of time down to very brief ones, we can realize that things are actually changing from moment to moment. Modern technology helps us see some of these changes; the development of a biological organism, for example, can be observed through a microscope. Also, at a subtle theorectical level, certain observations indicate the extremely dynamic nature of physical reality. It is this fundamental law of nature – impermanence – that creates the potential for our own change, development and progress.”

His Holiness The Fourteenth Dalai Lama Of Tibet

“Conclude, therefore, that under the control of self-cherishing since beginningless time, you have made one mistake after another, and now, it’s enough. Generate the strong determination never to travel this deluded path again. Compare yourself with great beings such as the Buddha and the bodhisattvas on the path to enlightenment and realize that all their achievements have come from working for others instead of for themselves.”
