"Buddhism is a training of the mind. An effect on the mind will never take place by force, but only voluntarily, on the basis of reason. Faith has an important role in mental transformation, but from a Buddhist point of view it must be faith based on conviction. Conviction, in turn, is based on understanding through investigation and analysis. Therefore, the study of the vast Buddhist scriptures is very essential. However, just as it is important to have a comprehensive understanding of the entire spectrum of the Buddha's path, it is equally important to integrate it into one's practice so that one takes the essence of these texts." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama at Centro Ewam, Florence, Meeting with Masters Program students and staff, May 1999.
