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.

2 monks made a peace Mandala with coloured sand all day outside.

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!

 

 

Compassion

Standard

I can see so much love and compassion in this world.

I am overwhelmed with it!

I need to share such wonders with you!

As you know my dad passed away in February and my mum is alone since then. She is in a Christian home and well looked after. She is making new friends now. In my school where I work I am well respected and loved. As it is my mum’s birthday soon, and my colleagues know it, one teacher asked the children to make some birthday cards to brighten my mum’s day!

What a wonderful thing to do! ( He had before done it before with Christmas cards made by the children to give to my dad when he was in hospital and not well).

Here are some examples.

The children put so much effort and love into it, it is so encouraging to see that 10 year olds learn about compassison and love.
