Allow the heart to empty itself of all turmoil!

Retrieve the utter tranquility of the mind

from which you issued.

Although all forms are dynamic,

and we all grow and transform,

each of us is compelled

to return to our root.


Our root is quietude.

Lao Tzu

Love and Compassion

Inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion.

The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well being.

Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease and opens our inner door.

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama
