Top-20 Most Thought-Provoking Dalai Lama Quotes

Dalai Lama Quotes Image

The most important components of the Buddhist spiritual path are wisdom and compassion. Just as a bird needs two wings to fly, so a spiritual practitioner in the Buddhist tradition needs both wisdom and compassion to make the flight. Having one without the other doesn’t quite let us understand the fullness of what spiritual practice is. On the one hand, wisdom allows us to truly feel our hearts and minds and, ultimately, the nature of reality. On the other hand, compassion allows us to recognize our deepest connection to all living beings. But only when we combine wisdom and compassion can we create the perfect balance between stillness and movement, emptiness and fullness. Dalai Lama Quotes are great thought-provoking tools that can help us to find this balance.

The 14th Dalai Lama Life

Today his Holiness considers himself an ordinary Buddhist monk and lives a simple life. He wakes up at 4 am, meditates, prays and follows a strict schedule of official audiences, meetings, religious ceremonies, and teachings. He ends his day with a prayer. Also, the 14th Dalai Lama travels a lot, he is engaged in religious activity, he is the author of many books, philosophical treatises, and sayings.

The 14th Dalai Lama Mission

His Holiness expressed his mission in this embodiment in this way:

  • Universal values: to bring patience, compassion, self-discipline, the ability to be content with little and forgive.
  • Interreligious harmony: finding mutual understanding between different religions and beliefs, because they all have one goal – to bring up good and kind people.
  • Tibet: work to preserve the Buddhist culture of their homeland, peace, and nonviolence.

Dalai Lama Quotes And Sayings

The Dalai Lama knows firsthand what is the secret of boundless happiness and how a person can achieve balance. According to Tibetan beliefs, there is nothing more important in life than peace and harmony in the soul. Only by finding them, you can see all the delights of this planet and achieve the desired harmony. By reading, listening and meditating on his insightful words, you will discover the key to understanding yourself, others, nature and the world.

Inspirational spiritual journey quote image

”I am alone and my spiritual journey is my experience. This is the real experience of freedom and independence. Then we begin to see that being alone is a very beautiful thing. Nobody is obstructing our vision. We have a complete panoramic vision.”
– Chogyam Trungpa

#2

“The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.”
Ram Dass

#3

“Life is the most precious and wondrous thing that any of us have. Along the way, one of the real miracles occurs when we realize that what really matters is to deepen our relationship to ourselves and that to do this we have to enter a spiritual journey. We have to discover anew, or for the first time, our own relationship to the Infinite. We must begin to risk trusting a whole new level of intimacy with ourselves, life, and the people whose lives we touch.”
– Richard Moss

#4

“The spiritual journey involves going beyond hope and fear, stepping into unknown territory, continually moving forward. The most important aspect of being on the spiritual path maybe just to keep moving.”
– Pema Chodron

#5

“It is more important to go slow and gain the lessons you need along the journey then to rush the process and arrive at your destination empty.”
– Germany Kent

#6

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth.”
– Marianne Williamson

#7

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Lao Tzu

#8

quote on spiritual journey image

“When we don’t get what we want, there’s a legitimate grieving, and then the spiritual journey truly begins, because not getting what we want breaks our self-reference; and once that is broken, we are aware that we are a part of a larger whole. It changes everything.”
– Mark Nepo

#9

“The spiritual journey does not consist of arriving at a new destination where a person gains what he did not have, or becomes what he is not. It consists of the dissipation of one’s own ignorance concerning oneself and life and the gradual growth of that understanding which begins the spiritual awakening. The finding of God is coming to one’s self.” – Aldous Huxley

#10

“We had thought that we were human beings making a spiritual journey; it may be truer to say that we are spiritual beings making a human journey.”
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

#11

“The spiritual journey is one of continuous learning and purification. When you know this, you become humble.”
– Sogyal Rinpoche

#12

“Within the spiritual journey, you understand that suffering becomes something that has been given to you to show you where your mind is still stuck. It’s a vehicle to help you go to work. That’s why it’s called grace.”
Ram Dass

#13

“The spiritual journey is what the soul is up to while we attend to daily living.”
– Christina Baldwin

#14

Eckhart Tolle

#18

“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”
– Marcel Proust

#19

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson

#20

“The journey home to God is what life is about. In a sense, it’s not even a journey. It’s an ongoing experience.”
– Harold Klemp

#21

“This is the pathless path – returning to where you were initially before you got lost. The deepest truth in you is where the journey leads – shedding, like taking off layers of an onion until you come to your essence. The key to the spiritual journey is not acquiring something outside of yourself. Rather it is shedding the veils to come back to the deepest truth of your being.”
– Ram Dass

#22

spiritual quote about marriage image

“Marriage is not a static state between two unchanging people. Marriage is a psychological and spiritual journey that begins in the ecstasy of attraction, meanders through a rocky stretch of self-discovery, and culminates in the creation of an intimate, joyful, lifelong union.”
– Harville Hendrix

#23

“The spiritual path – is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don’t know it.”
– Marianne Williamson

#24

“The spiritual journey is one that we must take “alone together,” in the same way that a good marriage involves a dance between solitude and communion. The life of the spirit entails a continuous alternation between retreating into oneself and going out into the world: it’s an inward-outward journey. There is a solitary part to it, but that solitude helps us to develop richer and more in-depth relationships with our friends, our children, our community, and the political world.”
– Sam Keen

#25

“The first part of the spiritual journey should properly be called psychological rather than spiritual because it involves peeling away the myths and illusions that have misinformed us.”
– Sam Keen

#26

“I’m not suggesting that I have all the answers or that I have experienced everything someone else has. I’m a firm believer that everyone’s life/spiritual journey is unique and personal, and I’m in no place to tell you what you have or have not experienced. However, I CAN tell you what I have experienced and learned, and I hope it is of use to someone out there.”
– Ryan Miller

#27

“I follow the religion of Love: Whatever way love’s camel takes, That is my religion, my faith.”
– Ibn Arabi

#28

“Facing the darkness, admitting the pain, allowing the pain to be pain, is never easy. This is why courage – big-heartedness – is the most essential virtue on the spiritual journey. But if we fail to let pain be pain – and our entire patriarchal culture refuses to let this happen – then pain will haunt us in nightmarish ways. We will become pain’s victims instead of the healers we might become.”
– Matthew Fox

#29

quote about zen journey image

“The only Zen you find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there.”
– Robert M. Pirsig

#30

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
Dalai Lama

#31

“It’s never too late to change the programming imprinted in childhood, carried in our genes or derived from previous lives; the solution is mindfulness in the present moment.”
– Peter Shepherd

#32

“How we sit within the body is an extremely important part of the spiritual journey. The body itself is used either by the spirit within us, or by the fear-based mind. When it is used by the spirit, then it is a thing of holiness. How we dwell within it, how we treat it, and how we use it in relationship to other aspects of the planet is extremely important. When we use the body without reverence, we are destructive elements on the planet. We become destructive to ourselves, to other life forms, and to the earth.”
– Marianne Williamson

#33

“Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There is no greater investment.”
– Stephen Covey

#34

“I think a spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of recovery. It’s a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It’s already there.”
– Billy Corgan

#35

“Man is lost and is wandering in a jungle where real values have no meaning. Real values can have meaning to man only when he steps on to the spiritual path, a path where negative emotions have no use.”
Sai Baba

#36

spiritual journey sayings image

“Knowing others is wisdom; knowing the self is enlightenment.”
– Tao Te Ching

#37

“In the place of stillness, rises potential. From the place of potential, emerges possibility. Where there is possibility, there is choice. And where there is choice, there is freedom!”
– Gabrielle Goddard

#38

“Our compassion is the fruit of our spiritual lives; it actually arises spontaneously when formed by intention in our spiritual practice. Love and compassion are always the goods of the spiritual journey, and they are guided by divine wisdom, which then shapes compassion in the concrete situations of our existence.”
– Wayne Teasdale

#39

“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion, and forgiveness … the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.”
Dalai Lama

#40

“Big-heartedness is the most essential virtue on the spiritual journey.”
– Matthew Fox

#41

“Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other’s experiences. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination.”
– A.R. Rahman

#42

– Surya Das

#44

“The creative process, like a spiritual journey, is intuitive, non-linear, and experiential. It points us toward our essential nature, which is a reflection of the boundless creativity of the universe.”
– John Daido Loori

#45

“There comes a time in the spiritual journey when you start making choices from a very different place. And if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health, happiness, wisdom, and love, it’s the right choice.”
– Angeles Arrien

#46

“Your spiritual journey and your spiritual welfare are really dependent on two primary factors: One, your ability to meditate, and two, your ability to give of yourself.”

#47

“Every positive change – every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness – involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”
– Dan Millman

#48

“Do not do tomorrow what you can do today.
If you feel the need to forgive, forgive today.
If you feel the need to risk, risk today.
If you feel the need to apologize, apologize today.
If you feel the need to love someone, love them today.
If you feel the need to create something, create something today.
If you do this there will be no conflict within, you will grow in Spirit
because you will be your true authentic Self – living at full potential.
Live for today, not for tomorrow.”
– Wallace Huey

#49

Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions

Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best

Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.”
Don Miguel Ruiz

#6

“I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.”
― John Lennon

#7

Spiritual quote to live by Image

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

#8

“One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth, and share it… cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”
― Steve Maraboli

#9

“Your greatest awakening comes, when you are aware about your infinite nature.”
― Amit Ray

#10

“The difference between theism and nontheism is not whether one does or does not believe in God. Theism is a deep-seated conviction that there’s some hand to hold: if we just do the right things, someone will appreciate us and take care of us. Nontheism is relaxing with the ambiguity and uncertainty of the present moment without reaching for anything to protect ourselves.”
― Pema Chodron

#11

“One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don’t leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”
Osho

#12

“A priest once quoted to me the Roman saying that a religion is dead when the priests laugh at each other across the altar. I always laugh at the altar, be it Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist, because real religion is the transformation of anxiety into laughter.”

“Anyone who is steady in his determination for the advanced stage of spiritual realization and can equally tolerate the onslaughts of distress and happiness is certainly a person eligible for liberation.”
― A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

― Albert Einstein

#15

“As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. … That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life… Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.”
― Anthony de Mello

#16

“I once listened to an Indian on television say that God was in the wind and the water, and I wondered at how beautiful that was because it meant you could swim in Him or have Him brush your face in a breeze.”
― Donald Miller

#17

Kabir poem image

“Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.”
― Kabir

#18

“Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear; and nothing controls you except your beliefs.”

― Brian Weiss

#21

“Each person you meet is an aspect of yourself, clamoring for love.”
― Eric Micha’el Leventhal

Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives.”
― Brené Brown

#23

“Awakening is not changing who you are, but discarding who you are not.”
Deepak Chopra

#24

quote on crying image

“Crying is one of the highest devotional songs. One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice. If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer. Crying includes all the principles of Yoga.”
― Kripalvanandji

#25

“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”
― Alice Walker

#26

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”
― Black Elk

#27

“Religion is for people who’re afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who’ve already been there.”
― Vine Deloria Jr.

#28

“Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don’t know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don’t know.”
― Pema Chödrön

#29

“Om is not just a sound or vibration. It is not just a symbol. It is the entire cosmos, whatever we can see, touch, hear and feel. Moreover, it is all that is within our perception and all that is beyond our perception. It is the core of our very existence. If you think of Om only as a sound, a technique or a symbol of the Divine, you will miss it altogether. Om is the mysterious cosmic energy that is the substratum of all the things and all the beings of the entire universe. It is an eternal song of the Divine. It is continuously resounding in silence on the background of everything that exists.”
― Amit Ray

#30

“Love is not an emotion. It is your very existence.”
― Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

#31

spiritual quote about following spiritual path image

“Your life is your spiritual path. It’s what’s right in front of you. You can’t live anyone else’s life. The task is to live yours and stop trying to copy one you think looks better.”
― Sandy Nathan

#32

“You have been to hell, Ketut?”
He smiled. Of course he’s been there.
What’s it like in hell?”
Same like in heaven,” he said.
He saw my confusion and tried to explain. “Universe is a circle, Liss.”
He said. “To up, to down — all same, at end.”
I remembered an old Christian mystic notion: As above, so below.
I asked. “Then how can you tell the difference between heaven and hell?”
Because of how you go. Heaven, you go up, through seven happy places. Hell, you go down, through seven sad places. This is why it better for you to go up, Liss.” He laughed.
Same-same,” he said. “Same in end, so better to be happy in journey.”
I said, “So, if heaven is love, then hell is.. “
Love, too,” he said.
Ketut laughed again, “Always so difficult for young people to understand this!”
―Elizabeth Gilbert

#33

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”
Wayne Dyer

#34

Enlightenment means taking full responsibility for your life.”
– William Blake

#35

“You can read books without ever stepping into a library, and practice spirituality without ever going to a temple.”
– Anthony de Mello

#36

“There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading to the same place, so it doesn’t matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.”
– Hindu proverb

#37

“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.”

– Amit Ray

– Eckhart Tolle

#46

“The five points of Yama, together with the five points of Niyama, remind us of the Ten Commandments of the Christian and Jewish faiths, as well as of the ten virtues of Buddhism. In fact, there is no religion without these moral or ethical codes. All spiritual life should be based on these things. They are the foundation stones without which we can never build anything lasting.”
― Sri S. Satchidananda

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.”

Paramahansa Yogananda

#51

– Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

“One of the most important of life’s lessons is to learn independence, to understand freedom. This means independence from attachments, from results, from opinions, and from expectations. Breaking attachments leads to freedom, but breaking attachments does not mean abandoning a loving and meaningful relationship, a relationship that nourishes your soul. It means ending dependency on any person or thing. Love is never a dependency.”
― Brian Weiss

#54

“Like those in the valley behind us, most people stand in sight of the spiritual mountains all their lives and never enter them, being content to listen to others who have been there and thus avoid the hardships.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“In spiritual life there is no room for compromise. Awakening is not negotiable; we cannot bargain to hold on to things that please us while relinquishing things that do not matter to us. A lukewarm yearning for awakening is not enough to sustain us through the difficulties involved in letting go. It is important to understand that anything that can be lost was never truly ours, anything that we deeply cling to only imprisons us.” – Jack Kornfield

Your hard journey has had a great purpose! Your pain was always a part of a plan to open your heart to love. Have faith. A miracle is happening in your life; the miracle of pain is transforming you to your highest self.” – Bryant H. McGill

#18

“It is possible to experience an awakening in this life through realising just how precious each moment, each mental process, and each breath truly is.” – Christy Turlington

Ram Dass Spiritual Quotes Image

#33

“The next time you find yourself in some way trying desperately to land safely, your compassion might be what finally gives you the courage you need to let go of the controls. In doing so, you might discover that each time you let go, it becomes easier and easier to re-enter the atmosphere of your own aliveness. Gradually you’ll come home to the flow of your own living presence, the warmth and space of your awakening heart.”- Tara Brach

#41

“We need limitations and temptations to open our inner selves, dispel our ignorance, tear off disguises, throw down old idols, and destroy false standards.

Only then do we discover a new capacity and appreciation of goodness and beauty and truth.”- Helen Keller
