His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama came to Washington, DC, this month to celebrate his birthday, participate in the Talk for World Peace on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol and to confer the Kalachakra Initiation, a respected Buddhist empowerment and teachings on peace.
While all of this occurs two miles from my home, I will not attend but am there every day in spirit. I have had the honor of attending HH’s teaching on two other occasions, both in Washington. Both, compelling sessions with a simple buddhist monk, as he humbly asserts.
The Dalai Lama is a remarkable being who teaches that real religion is combination of compassion and tolerance. The embodiment of what he says is the true heart of the human spirit ― gentleness ― he prays:
I pray for a more friendly,
more caring and more
human family on this planet.
To all who dislike suffering,
who cherish lasting happiness --
this is my heartfelt wish.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
