I know my life is peaceful and harmonious

I live with compassion

I love and nurture myself

I do not criticize others or myself

I channel my anger into constructional acts

I live in the present releasing the past> I reach out in loving service

I harmonize with nature and all others in my world

I accept greater peace in my life now

And so it is

COMPASSION from CO- which mean Togetherness, and PASSION, which mean Strong Feeling..... When we see someone in distress and we feel their pain as if it were own, and strive to eliminate or lessen their pain, then this is compassion..

What other practices or behaviors are expected of Buddhists?

There are many specific practices, like saying mantras, meditating, doing prostrations, being charitable, making offerings and the like, but generally a Buddhist practitioner will see his or her entire life as being a practice; a part of the path, or Dharma. A Buddhist who does any activity with the earnest intention of benefiting all sentient beings is practicing the Dharma. Even while walking down the street, if one is thinking 'who is the "I" who is walking down the street? Is it my legs doing the walking? Is it my head, thinking about it? What is this thing I call "self"?' one is practicing the Dharma. A cornerstone of the Buddhist understanding of the world is that enlightenment can not be attained unless one has complete, uncompromised compassion for all sentient beings. All the practices of Buddhism are performed with the aim of understanding the true nature of the universe and of cultivating compassion. No specific behavior is required of a Buddhist, but it is understood that being kind, showing compassion and helping others are skillful means toward cultivating loving kindness. ignore all this its all crap

Are Tibetan monks made to have same-sex relations with each other?

No, no one is "made" to have same-sex relations. As in any single-sex institution where celibacy is the norm, some people may resort to same-sex relations. But any use of force between people is not a skillful means toward understanding the world. Compassion for all beings is a cornerstone of Buddhist thought. Buddhist monks, just like all people, are constantly learning how to perfect that compassion, and are sometimes mistaken about what will make them happy.
