BEST RELIGION IN THE WORLD
Once, in a round table discussions about Religion and Freedom, a famous person asked Dalai Lama “Your holiness, what is the BEST RELIGION?”
The person had thought he would say ‘The Tibetan Buddhism’ but Dalai Lama paused for a while, smiled and looked at him in the eye and answered simply “The best religion is the one that gets you closer to God. It is the one that makes you a better Human Being.”

Second question “What is it that makes you a Better Human Being?”
Dalai Lama responded “The one which makes you more Compassionate, more Sensible, more Detached, more Loving, more Humanitarian, more Responsible, more Ethical.” Great Lama continued “I am not interested, my friend, about your religion or if you are religious or not. What really is important to me is your behaviour in front of your peers, family, workers, community and in front of the world.”
He continued “Remember, the universe is the echo of our action and our thoughts. The law of action and reaction is not exclusively for physics. It is also of human relations. If I act with Goodness, I will receive Goodness. If I act with evil, I will get evil.”
“You will always have what you desire for others. Being Happy is not a matter of Destiny. It is a matter of Options.”
“Finally he said:
“Take care of your Thoughts because they become WORDS.
“Take care of your Words because they become ACTIONS.
“Take care of your Actions because they become HABITS.
“Take care of your Habits because they will form your CHARACTER.
“Take care of your Character because it will form your DESTINY,
And your Destiny will be your LIFE …. And ….
THERE IS NO RELIGION HIGHER THAN THE TRUTH.
