This 9"x 16" cloth scroll has advice on how to live ones life for the benefit of others by H.H. the14th Dalai Lama:
A PRECIOUS HUMAN LIFE
"EVERY DAY, THINK AS YOU WAKE UP,
TODAY I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE WOKEN UP.
I AM ALIVE, I HAVE A PRECIOUS HUMAN LIFE.
I AM NOT GOIN TO WASTE IT.
I AM GOING TO USE
ALL OF MY ENERGIES TO DEVELOP MYSELF
TO EXPAND MY HEART OUT TO OTHERS.
TO ACHIEVE ENLIGHTENMENT FOR
THE BENEFIT OF ALL BEINGS,
I AM GOIN TO HAVE KIND
THOUGHTS TOWARDS OTHER.
I AM NOT GOING TO GET ANGRY
OR THINK BADLY ABOUT OTHERS.
I AM GOING TO BENEFIT OTHERS
AS MUCH AS I CAN."
H.H. THE XIVTH DALAI LAMA
