My simple religion

Tuesday June 7, 2011 #322

 “This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”

 ~Dalai Lama

The various man-made ‘religions’ overcomplicate a simple truth, eloquently expressed by the Dalai Lama:  Simple kindness, if practiced consistently and whole-heartedly, provides all the spiritual sustenance we need.  Whatever your religious beliefs, I ask you to consider simply practicing kindness – beginning with yourself, and then to your friends and foes alike.
