Happy 80th Birthday His Holiness!

Happy 80th Birthday His Holiness!

I’ve been privileged seeing the 14th Dalai Lama a few weeks ago for the second time already during his regular visits to Australia.

His Holiness, who has dedicated his life to peace and kindness, is the greatest inspiration, and I can’t express how grateful I am for his teachings.

Today is the Dalai Lama’s, Tenzin Gyatso’s 80th Birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY His Holiness !!!

You inspire us all with your endless compassion and we all pray that you remain with us for many more years to come!

Let’s all celebrate the Dalai Lama’s Birthday by living with Compassion 🙂

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” 

“When we are motivated by compassion and wisdom, the results of our actions benefit everyone, not just our individual selves or some immediate convenience. When we are able to recognize and forgive ignorant actions of the past, we gain strength to constructively solve the problems of the present.”

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.”

“Every single being, even those who are hostile to us, is just as afraid of suffering as we are, and seeks happiness in the same way we do. Every person has the same right as we do to be happy and not to suffer. So let’s take care of others wholeheartedly, of both our friends and our enemies. This is the basis for true compassion.”
