Isn't he WONDERFUL? And so human!  I loved what he had to share, both the powerful silent moments and his way of sharing one of his "secrets"...gotta love that--it makes me feel more connected to him, certainly! 

Praful Thakkar he has a magic about him, doesn't he?

Jeff Dowler a laugh is so GOOD. And nice to pass on, happy holidays, bud~!

Myrl Jeffcoat beautifully said and I completely agree.

Kathleen Daniels haha!!!! YOu, too! (and "toot")!

Patricia Kennedy I happened upon this awhile ago, and had an aha moment while reading Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint post. It made me think of this, for some reason. So glad that I found it again!

You are MOST welcome dear lady, Beth Atalay!

Happiness means you can be human and laugh at yourself. Everyone deserves to be happy here on earth and the Dalai sets a great example.

Thank you for this wonderful and very entertaining story teaching the world that nobody here on earth is perfect. 

Wishing you an abundance of happiness!

I've always loved that the Dalai Lama does not need to possess things!!! He loves to shop but enjoys looking and touching as much as having.  What wonderful words of wisdom
