The Dalai Lama: “This is my favorite Prayer to say every day.”

The Dalai Lama: “This is my favorite Prayer. Daily I pray this it gives me inner strength and enthusiasm to serve sentient being and humanity.”

This is beautiful, and helpful. A daily prayer, dedication of merit or reminder of motivation sets our approach or intention to our every action, streamlining our karma and energy.

Today 600 people gathered in front of our parliament building, begging our government to reconsider their decision of NOT meeting with his Holiness The Dalai Lame when he visits Norway next week. He is invited here by the Tibetan exile community to mark his 25 th anniversary for receiving the Nobel Peace Price. Our leaders made this decision based on fear of Chinese reprimands, rather than respect for human rights, compassion for those who suffers and without any integrity at all. They will not even let his Holiness use the main door but will take him in through the kitchen entrance. I feel we are lost in fear and greed and it saddens me that we are willing to sacrifice all decency in pursuit of even more wealth.
This is a sad moment in our history and I hope the international community will respond and help kickstart our moral compass.

The prayer that the Dalai Lama says every day:
"As long as space remains/and as long as sentient beings remain/until then may I too remain/to help dispel the misery of the world."
