"With our thoughts, we make our world. Our mind is central and precedes our deeds. Speak or act with a pure mind, and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never leaves. May there be joy in the world with harvest and spiritual rest. May every good fortune come to be and may all our wishes be fulfilled. This is my favorite prayer. Daily I pray this. That gives me inner strength. So I have enthusiasm to serve sentient beings and humanity. As long as space remains and as long as sentient beings remain, until then may I too, remain and help dispel the misery of the world."
–His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama
