Mantra from the Dalai Lama | Just a Short Buddhist Outlook on Life

Posted on 18 December 2008 by Liza Mae V.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
+
This year I have taken a big risk in leaving my comfortable four year relationship for the unknown and it resulted in my great love for mi amore and especially myself.  It is time to take more risks for 2009.

2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
+ When faced with the same situation, I sometimes forget the lesson learned and repeat my mistakes but I am learning to break this habit.  I have already begin to do so because I am conscious of it now.

3. Follow the three R’s:

Respect for self
Respect for others and
Responsibility for all your actions.

4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
+ Very true, it has happened a couple of times in my favour. 

5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
+ Rules who needs rules?

6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

8. Spend some time alone every day.
+ Hrmmm, it seems I don’t do this enough.   I am always around people, whether it be at home or at work.

9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
+  I am guilty for this occasionally.  In a heated argument things slip up but I do keep this in mind.

14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
+ I have traveled this year but I don’t think anywhere new – Miami, New York, Montreal.

17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
+ =)

18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

19. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
