"The key concepts that define the goals of the Dalai Lama Center are; one, the promotion of human values; and two, the promotion of a sense of oneness within humanity. These two ideas serve to promote peace among different communities within one nation, within one world. And they will be particularly useful in shaping the long-term goals of the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education in Vancouver, Canada." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama (quote taken from back of the cover shown - this was purchased after the show on September 9th...the LIVE AUDIO of the Dalai Lama - a beautiful recording!)
Graced to be a part of his seminars during the weekend of September 8 and 9...he spoke the first day of "Educating the Heart"...the essence of which was that children must learn from a young age or empathy, compassion, and working together for a better world...gone are the days of selfishness and bullying in the playgrounds of the future! A more compassionate youth leads to a more compassionate adult community and in turn a more compassionate system that governments, countries, and the world can work with.
The following day on September 9th I was blessed to join the masses in seeing the Dalai Lama become an honorary Canadian Citizen! With this he spoke of the new Dalai Lama Center www.dalailamacenter.org that will be built in Vancouver...the only Center in the world that will carry the name of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama!
In his talk on "Cultivating Happiness" he spoke of a world of happiness based on scientific results...regardless of religion, philosophy, or people that chose to be atheist...none of that matters; what matters is the understanding that we all just want to be happy! and to achieve this happiness we must work together! for a better world. Through scientific research and results The Dalai Lama will prove that certain actions will create a calm mind, beyond religion and semantics the science will prove ways in which people can act to be better people...proving that a calm mind is the foundation for peace, health, and a more unified world...with scientific results they will be able to develop step-by-step guides on generating a better world of people...more compassionate, caring people...caring for themselves and the world together.
A beautiful future lies ahead!
Namaste...walk well, live well, embrace and be happy.
