|His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of Tibet.
At the age of two the child, who was named Lhamo Dhondup at that time was recognized as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso. In 1959, with the brutal suppression of the Tibetan national uprising in Lhasa by Chinese troops, the Dalai Lama was forced to escape into exile.
|I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice;
that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives.
I’m not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like
sex, drugs or gambling,
but something that will bring true and lasting happiness.
The kind that sticks.
