Oh my! I've just found out
that the Dalai Lama is coming here,
where I live, in the fall!!!!!!!!!!! This is a
dream come true for me!!!
Being able to hear him speak, to see him,
is on my list of things I want to see/do/experience before I die. I am overwhelmed with feelings of happiness and gratitude.
The stars and planets must have aligned over my little world because I never ever thought it would happen like this.
I don't know what else to write because
the rest of my post would be more of the same: ...happy!!!!!! ...thrilled!!!!!!! ...excited!!!!!!! ...elated!!!!!!
Sometimes, very good things happen.
Why I love him:
My religion is very simple.
My religion is kindness.
Our prime purpose in this life
is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
Whether one believes in a religion
or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.
