Beauty is a form of knowledge.
Each of us has a natural receptivity to the principles of the mandala;
The principles of beauty and harmony, interconnectedness and wholeness
are directly revealed within the world of nature
and within the human heart.
The time has come
to explore the connection
between the inner and outer environments,
to develop appreciation in place of aggression.
Nourished by beauty,
we can recover balance and openness.
As the flower of the heart unfolds,
joyful compassionate action comes forth naturally
and bears fruit we can harvest and share.
Once we heal the human heart,
we will be empowered to heal the planet.
In protecting nature,
we will be serving the highest human values,
the flowering of the full potential of humanity.
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche
