“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”

-Dalai Lama
Quote on purpose of life by Dalai Lama- "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them."
Dalai Lama’s entire life has been about working for society and elevating the community. He has been on a mission to show the path to every being with no boundaries to any religion or any specific community.

Dalai Lama once said. “I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.” Credit: GoodReads.com
