Though I am a practising Christian I have always admired the Dalai Lama for his simplistic living.
Lhamo Thondup was born on July 6, 1935 in Taktser, China, northeast of Tibet, to a peasant family. … Young Lhamo was renamed Tenzin Gyatso and proclaimed the 14th Dalai Lama.
Dalai Lamas are believed to be the reincarnation of Avalokitesvara, an important Buddhist deity and the personification of compassion.
We love the Dalai Lama for the amazing and inspring quotes like:
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
