Quote of the Day – Tenzin Gyatso on Being Content

On this day, in 1940, Tenzin Gyatso was enthroned as the 14th, and current, Dalai Lama. I thought we could all use some reminders about inner peace and contentment. 🙂 There have been 14 Dalai Lamas, which are considered as reincarnations of the original.

In order to be happy we must first possess inner contentment; and inner contentment doesn’t come from having all we want; but rather from wanting and appreciating all we have. – Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
