His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

In my personal column “Letters from around the World” in Austria’s leading Women & Lifestyle Magazin “Für Mich”, I usually cover my journeys all around the globe in search for wind and waves…

In the freshly printed latest issue of the magazine that has just hit newsagents shelves all around my home country, I decided to cover a journey of a different kind:  “The Journey to Spirituality”.

I have recently had the incredible pleasure to see His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet live during his “A Man of Compassion & Wisdom, 2011 Australian visit”.

His Holiness spoke in Perth’s Burswood Dome in front of 14.000 people about “Spirituality in the Modern World”.

Since many, many years I have been extremely interested in the Dalai Lama’s teachings and have been reading many of his books as well as I practice Buddhist Meditation myself.

Having had the opportunity to be in His Holiness presence was a rare and wonderful one that I will never forget in my life. He is one of the most amazing and inspiring people of our time and each and every person on the planet could learn so very much from him. If all of us had only 1% of the Dalai Lama inside of us, the world would be a MUCH MUCH MUCH better place, more peaceful and way happier!

Thank you Your Holiness for giving us your words of wisdom and for showing us your unending compassion for all sentient beings.

That day, me personally, I have received some of his immense blessings into my heart and mind and I would like to share these blessings with all around me.

“I believe the purpose of our existence is happiness”
(His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet)
