Pico Iyer writes in Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama (2008):

Buddhists do not (or need not) seek solutions from outside themselves, but merely awakening within; the minute we come to see that our destinies or well-being are all mutually dependent, they say, the rest naturally follows (meditation sometimes seems the way we come to this perception, reasoning the way we consolidate it.) If you believe this, human life offers you many more belly laughs daily, as the Dalai Lama exemplifies.
