Contentment & Simplicity 知足と質素

"Because of the risks involved in indulging in unrestrained desire and greed we need to cultivate contentment and simplicity."
(From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tweet on November 22, 2013)


We must restrain from too much desire and greed through contentment and simplicity in order to be happy. The balance between material value and spiritual value is vital.(My commentary)
