a wise and beneficial birthday message/gift for us from His Holiness The Dalai Lama on his birthday.
HH Dalai Lama Birthday Message
on a side note: yesterday i had the great pleasure of seeing His Holiness give a public talk in the afternoon around noon. you know what time he got up that day? 1am. at 80 years old and after a full day the previous day, he got up at 1am for his 4 hours of prayers and meditation, then spoke at a breakfast, did interviews, had lunch, and then gave a public talk that went until 3:30pm. he had energy, humor and clarity while delivering a much needed message on compassion, education and art. so impressive and generous! happy birthday your Holiness, deep bows of gratitude and a vow to contribute to this compassion movement!!
