The Dalai Lama of Tibet

Where do I start, this is the highlight of 2007. Yesterday I went to the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet's teaching in Melbourne on Universal responsibility. There were well over 10,000 people there, listening intently to each word spoken. A truly remarkable man with a wonderful sense of humour! A man devoted to the wellbeing of all, a compassionate man.

I left a few minutes early and started to walk out when another lady and myself were told to stand aside for a minute and then the Dalai Lama, a passenger in a car, drove right past us (3' away), clasped his hands and bowed to us individually whilst he was leave the venue. The girl next to me told me we were blessed and I certainly felt that.

It has been approximately ten years since I last saw the Dalai Lama and I will probably not see him again. You are truly an inspiration.


"The basic source of happiness are a good heart, compassion and love" The Dalai Lama
