Every living being has the potential to be free from suffering and to develop limitless love and compassion for others. Working to help human beings fulfill this potential are the individuals, meditation groups, monasteries, retreat centers, publishing houses, businesses and members who are part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition.

"Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them." - Shakyamuni Buddha -

Never give up ...

No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart.
Too much energy in your country is spent
developing the mind instead of the heart.
Be compassionate, not just to your
friends, but to everyone.
Be compassionate.
Work for peace in your heart and in the world.
Work for peace.
And again I say, never give up.
No matter what is happening
No matter what is going on around you

Never give up.

- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama -
