The True Meaning of Life

Here is a brilliant expression of the True Meaning of Life from His holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso:

“We are visitors on this planet

we are here for ninety
or one hundred years
at the very most.

During that period
we must try do do something
good, something useful
with our lives.

If you contribute to other
people’s happiness, you will
find the true goal,
the true meaning of life”

One of my favorite books by the 14th Dalai Lama is The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living
