“When we are angry, when we are excited, when we are depressed, when we are elated, we are completely submerged in and identified with those thoughts and feelings. This is why we suffer. We suffer because we are completely identified with our thoughts and feelings and we think this is me. This is who I am.”

She has been influential for all the women in the early 20th century as she became the spiritual nun to practice Buddhism.

According to Tenzin, the purpose of life is to make others happy, serving others, and helping others to achieve their goal. The meaning is to dive inside ourselves to find our true nature of Awareness. The combination of our Awareness and Compassion within ourselves gives meaning to every action we take.

Mastering yourself over your mind is the best exercise one can follow to lead in a spiritual path.

“One of the advantages of being born in an affluent society is that if one has any intelligence at all, one will realize that having more and more won’t solve the problem, and happiness does not lie in possessions, or even relationships: The answer lies within ourselves. If we can’t find peace and happiness there, it’s not going to come from the outside.”
