Recently at the world famous Glastonbury Festival, His Holiness the Dalai Lama appeared before the massive crowd of festival-goers and celebrated his 80th birthday with much happiness and grace.
His Holiness also addressed the crowd and delivered ideas of love and compassion. You can watch it here!
I was truly inspired and influenced by this. The ideas of strengthening friendships, providing moral actions to a very sensitive world and just being a compassionate human being make me happy.
I sincerely believe in a world fueled by good deeds. Yes, this is possible. One must believe in expressing the goodness in oneself. It sounds very simple but that is the truth – it is simple!
By believing in and practicing these good deeds, the mind and soul achieve confidence and happiness.
Good deeds include helping others, being concerned for all forms of nature, believing in peace and being compassionate.
His Holiness makes a strong point that by being compassionate, you achieve happiness!
I respect The Dalai Lama’s teachings because they tell us the truth in a simple manner. They invoke the goodness in all of us and help us become better human beings.
It is always great to read such quotes and articles on twitter and online.
I felt like passing on this message in this time of violence and social unrest. Peace is essential for society and every single individual.
We must help each other!
I celebrated my birthday last night! 🙂
