The Dalai Lama is one of my favorite people on Earth.
I attended his 80th birthday ceremony in Ladakh, India, a few years ago. I was only 15 meters away from him when he gave his birthday speech in Tibetan. Although I couldn’t understand what he was saying, I could feel his unmatched energy and infinite wisdom.
I was never able to understand happiness until I read his book The Art of Happiness. That book opened spiritual portals within me that were closed for many years.
That was a long time ago, but I still like to surf the Internet every now and then and watch videos of him talking about various topics.
The last one I rewatched was about happiness, and, of course, the Dalai Lama jolted me awake with his words and much needed wisdom.
This three-minute video is all we need to carry us through life and these hard times. It might be difficult at first to implement the Dalai Lama’s ideas, but it’s beneficial to listen to them and let them sink in for now.
May this video inspire you to change your mental attitude the same way it has inspired me.
