Without compassion in your heart, all you have is ego, which both, directly and indirectly, harms all sentient beings, including those in this world and your country, and your own family: parents, companion, children and yourself. The more you can practice compassion, the greater will be the peace and happiness in your heart and in your life. ~ Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

In the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha most excellent.
I take refuge until enlightenment is reached.
By the merit of generosity and other good deeds,
May I attain Buddhahood for the sake of all sentient beings!
~ Refuge Prayer
On life’s journey Faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him, If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom.-Buddhist Quote
