  1. i have loved this wonderful man for years. and i’ve read all his books and own quite a few of them. “kindness is my religion.” if the world would only listen to him!

    i thought you knew about buddhism and me rummy.
    i’ve had beginner’s mind for a long long time. it’s not anything new about me.
    even as a teenager i was studying buddhism. and zen especially. much to the chagrin of my little 7th day Adventist grandmother!
    poor gram. convinced always that i was lost because of it.

    i did a post about the dalai lama once. but i can’t find it now on the peanut. i lost many posts to those hackers that time. when the captain had to repair what they had done.
    and i hadn’t seen this video. i usually watch all that i can but i missed this one.
    so thank you for this lovely morning gift!

    1. As you probably know, his headquarters is in India and there is a sizeable Tibetan refugee population in India settled in many places. The Dalai Lama is also a source of irritation for the Chinese who keep objecting to his presence in India. As I write this there is tension between the two countries because the Dalai Lama visited a border state with a very important Buddhist monastery there. China forgets that India is a democracy!

  2. How can one not love a man who smiles and laughs his way through life. His inner joy explodes into my lives with such force that reading his books and listening to his talks can lift me above any discontent within minutes. Thanks, Ramana, I have not seen this talk and it gives me an opportunity hear his laughter once again.
    A son and daughter of mine saw the Dalai Lama when traveling in India a few years ago. They were each struck by the intense presence of this man. When he looked into their eyes, they knew that he was truly seeing them. Powerful concept to remember.
