His Holiness The Dalai Lama – in London

Standard

I have had the fortune to see His Holiness The Dalai Lama,

when he visited London yesterday.

He talked about compassion,

happiness,

love and affection

and ended with a question and answer session.

 

“Compassion is a marvel of human nature,

a precious inner resource

and the foundation of our well-being

and the harmony of our societies.”

The Dalai Lama

 

It was fascinating to listen to his wisdom directly in his spoken words.

I managed to see it at the end stage.

The Dalai Lama likes to laugh and has a wonderful smile.

 

“The first step toward living a happy life

is to treat every other human with kindness.

There are several steps after that,

but I can’t remember right now. “

It was an amazing experience!

Animal Love

Every living being needs affection: a cuddle, a touch, a kiss, a smile, a compliment.

Every one shows love differently.

Animals show their love and affection too – in different ways……
