Insights into Buddhism (video)

 

The greatest achievement is selflessness.  The greatest quality is seeking to serve others... The greatest action is not conforming with the world's ways... The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind. The greatest patience is humility.  The greatest effort is not concerned with results... The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.
-Atisha
