Article 6. Responsibility is an inherent aspect of any relation in which human beings are involved. This capacity to act responsibly in a conscious, independent, unique and personal manner is an inalienable creative quality of every human being. There is no limit to its scope or depth other than that established by each person for himself. The more it is accepted and exercised, the more it will grow and strengthen.

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 9
|U Thant joined the UN as a deeply spiritual being, fully living is Buddhist faith. He lived the UN spiritually every single day. He left the UN with this spiritual message to the staff. |
I have certain priorities in regard to virtues and human values. An ideal man, an ideal woman, is one who is endowed with four attributes, four qualities physical, intellectual, moral and spiritual qualities. Of course it is very rare to find a human being who is endowed with all these qualities but, as far as priorities are concerned, I would attach greater importance to intellectual qualities over physical qualities. I would attach still greater importance to moral qualities over intellectual qualities. It is far from my intention to denigrate intellectualism, but I would attach greater importance to moral qualities or moral virtues moral qualities like love, compassion, understanding, tolerance, the philosophy of, 'live and let live', the ability to understand the other person's point of view, which are the key to all great religions.
And above all I would attach the greatest importance to spiritual values, spiritual qualities I deliberately avoid using the term 'religion.' I have in mind the spiritual virtues, faith in oneself, the purity of one's inner self which to me is the greatest virtue of all. With this approach, with this philosophy, with this concept alone, we will be able to fashion the kind of society we want, the society which was envisaged by the founding fathers of the United Nations."
U Thant could not understand that we westerners separate so easily spirituality from life and leave it to a church service on Sunday. For him his entire life, from morning to evening, was a spiritual communion with the universe, with the Earth and humanity, even and especially in the midst of a crisis or a difficult negotiation."
"The greatest discovery of my generation
is that a human being can
alter their life by altering their attitudes. "
Philosopher & psychologist (1842 - 1910)
Happiness is a The United Nations’ legendary Robert Muller maintains with the Dalai Lama that happiness is the purpose of life. With the
re-release of Muller’s 1978 classic Most of All They Taught Me Happiness, he and his wife Barbara Gaughen Muller are
committed to teaching “why happiness works,” how it’s a choice, and that being happy is actually proof that you are
living your code of destiny.
Learn how DECIDING to be happy even in the most difficult situations contributes to the health and well-being of ourselves, each other and the entire planet.
