Purpose is Contentment

One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about it or not: what is the purpose of life? From the moment of birth every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affects this.

From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.

Dalai Lama quotes (1989 Nobel Peace Prize, b.1935)

Happy 2009 my friends! My wish for you this year is to find your contentment and happiness. love, Kimmy
