“Are you enlightened, your Holiness?” “No!”

Plus, the Dalai Lama gets, and gives, a “kiss.”

The most popular “Dalai Lama” video on youtube.

“Dalai Lama Speaking about Buddhist view of heaven.”

The purpose of life? To be happy. But how? Warm-heartedness. “Compassion gives you inner strength. That, really, changes your attitude.”
