On Friday I bought a daily calendar. The ones I've had before haven't been anything special but I really like the one I picked for this year. Every day there is a new quote from the Dalai Lama. I have decided to post them here for the remainder of the year. Out of the ones until today there is only one that I really liked:
Happiness comes through taming the mind; without taming the mind there is no way to be happy.Today's quote though is:
The ten misdeeds include three physical activities - taking life, taking what is not given, and abusive sexual behavior; four verbal activities - lying, slander, harsh words and idle gossip; and three mental activities - covetousness, malice, and wrong view. Abandoning these ten is crucial if we want to achieve a fortunate rebirth.
