The Dalai Lama’s Instructions for Life:

♥ Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
♥ When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
♥ Follow the three R’s:
– Respect for self.
– Respect for others.
– Responsibility for all your actions.
♥ Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
♥ Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
♥ Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.

♥ Spend some time alone everyday.
♥ Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
♥ Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
♥ Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
♥ A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
♥ In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
♥ Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.
♥ Be gentle with the earth.
♥ Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
♥ Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
♥ Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
♥ Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
