Dalai Lama On Humanity | Inspirational Quotes | Recited By Simerjeet Singh

I was in Dharamshala recently, which is
the highest seat of the Tibetan Buddhists. In a shop there, I saw this quotation printed on a t-shirt which I thought I’m really excited to share it with you all. I thought it was very profound. It said, someone once asked
His Holiness The Dalai Lama. ‘What surprises him the most about man,
about mankind?’ His answer is very profound.
His Holiness The Dalai Lama replied.. ‘MAN’ surprises me the most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health
in order to make money. And then he sacrifices his money
trying to recuperate his health. And then he’s so anxious about
the future that he does not enjoy the present. The result being that he does not
live in the present or the future. He lives, as if he’s never going to die.
And he dies, having never really lived. Those words give me goosebumps
every time I read them. And that’s why I was so excited
sharing them with you. Here’s my reflections on this particular quotation. What I feel is really important is
taking out the time for self-reflection. It’s really important to figure out what your priorities are. Every once in a while get off
the treadmill of achievement. You know, this race that you’re
trying to run in continuous. You’re trying to get ahead of everyone. Every now and then. Get off this treadmill. Take a deep breath in. And ask a few questions to yourself. Where am I Going? Is it going to be worthwhile when I get there? What sacrifices am i making in order to get there? What is my inner voice telling me? So I’m not really advocating poverty here, or I’m not advocating that you give up taking action. What I am advocating, and what The Dalai Lama’s quotation, my interpretation of it is.. Seek inner balance.
Strive for inner balance! Get your priorities right.
Take out the time for self-reflection. And more importantly than
anything else, you remember.. There is nothing more luxurious on this planet than
the feeling of inner peace.

  1. Very well recited sir . ๐Ÿ™‚
    We all forget to live in present . we are just running according to our life is going , we forget that we have some priority, we have our own beautiful and precious life.
    we don't give time to our present and after that future don't give us time.

  4. sat sri akal simarjeet ji..
    thank you for sharing the video. Everyone has their own perception and opinions of attaining peace and happiness,and i respect yours. what i constantly tell everyone around me and what we do not realise is that we are all pure,powerful peaceful, souls.. we only need to realise it.
    i listened to bk shivani on you tube and my way of thinking changed entirely. u can look her up if u want in her series 'happiness unlimited ' ;we need to think good and we wont really need to strive for balance.. it will happen on it's own.
