The Dalai Lama on Humanity

Standard

.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered:

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.  Then, he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.  And, then, he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present.  The result being that he does not live in the present or the future.  He lives as if he is never going to die and, then, dies never having really lived.”
