Believing that the purpose of life is to be happy is something beautiful, meaningful, and fulfilling.

Following the words of The Dalai Lama will help you understand such mantras and help you adopt them in your every day life.

The Dalai Lama is the wise, spiritual leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. Born on July 6, 1935, in Taktser, Tibet, Dalai Lama is someone many turn to when seeking mindfulness and mantras. He is known for his teachings on compassion, nonviolence, and his efforts to promote human values and religious harmony.

If you wish to bring more harmony, peace, and clarity into your life, here are five life lessons to adopt.


“I believe that the purpose of life is to be happy.”

If you choose to be happy, you will become happy. It is true that you are what you believe. If you believe in happiness as the best way to live, you will attract happiness and good things.


Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

Sometimes, it is best to not get what you want as you learn from mistakes and failures. When things go wrong, you can figure out how to improve and grow. Growth is a beautiful thing. If you are continuously lucky, you might lack the understanding of learning. With bouts of bad lucks, you can learn and also, become more grateful for the small things in life.


“Be a nice person. Be a good person.”

Spreading more kindness is something everyone should wish to achieve. You can make the world a kinder, giving place if you show others how to be kind. When you are kind, you will hopefully receive kindness in return. Don’t people the way they treat you, treat them better.

“Positive and negative actions are determined by one’s own motivation. If the motivation is good, all actions become positive; if the motivation is wrong, all actions become negative.”

Again, what you believe is what you attract. If you stay positively motivated and adopt the right mindset, you will receive positive things. The opposite will happen if your motivation is negative. Adopting this mantra will push you to motivate yourself and think more positively to attract better things.


“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

You must love and have peace with yourself before worrying about the world. You can’t make the world a better place if you don’t give yourself time and attention first. First, you must be calm, happy, and in the right mindset before you go out to help others. With clarity and the right reasons, you can then help make peace in the world.


Remind yourself of these quotes and mantras daily. Save this post, screenshot them, write them down – have them around you and use them as daily affirmations to bring more harmony and peace to your life.
