“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” ― Dalai Lama

This is a difficult but enjoyable hobby.We have renewed high respect for calligraphers and illuminators. They must have a lot of patience and large rubber lungs. While practicing calligraphy, one barely breathes.
