Dharma Quote

Good attitudes are based on love and compassion. Developing a sense of love and compassion within ourselves and further cultivating and protecting that sense of love and compassion is the best attitude that we can develop. These attitudes become a great solace for us in life.

Ven. Geshe Doga 16-6-10
