These 3 pendants can be hung somewhere visible to remind us daily of 3 quotes of the Dalai Lama which are relevant to life today. The simple but striking pendants are made from a durable canvas printed with the words of inspiration and mounted on a wooden mounting. The pendants are approx. 21.5cm x 40.5 cm, and are made by Tibetans in India.
The Paradox of Our Age: “We have bigger houses but smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicines, but less healthiness; We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We built more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication; We have become long on quantity, but short on quality. These are times of fast foods but slow digestion; Tall man but short character; Steep profits but shallow relationships. It’s a time when there is much in the window, but nothing in the room” – His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
A Precious Human Life: “Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it, I am going to use all of my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefits of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry, or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can” – His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
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, Develop 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 I say again, 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
