The Dalai Lama [ Wikipedia ] is a title, the title name is a combination of the Mongolic word dalai meaning “ocean” and the Tibetan word བླ་མ་ (bla-ma) meaning “guru, teacher, mentor”. Tenzin Gyatso is the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibetian Buddhism, due to political differences and ideology, the current Dalai Lama lives in exile.
Dalai Lama is the religious leader for all mankind be it atheist, he once said: “All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.” and “Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.” Remember, every religion in the world teaches us compassion, love, and peace. Do not cross the path as an extremist by looking down on another religion or belittle them. The path to peace is respect, you may not believe their teaching but that doesn’t mean you have ever right to call them ‘lost’ and deviant.
There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’ No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster. – Dalai Lama
Man surprised me most about humanity because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health and then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived. – Dalai Lama
