The Dalai Lama reminds us to work for peace in the world and in our hearts no matter what and it is compassion which is vital for achieving this goal.

No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up

Dalai Lama
