Happy 77th Birthday to the Dalai Lama

Happy 77th Birthday to the Dalai Lama

I love the Dalai Lama, a man I have never met, but in reading his words and watching him in interviews he is the living example of how to live a happy and fulfilled life regardless of the circumstances you are under.  Have a happy day my friends and happy birthday your holiness ~ Rev Kane

Happy Birthday your holiness!

The Dalai Lama’s message thanking well wishers:

I would like to thank everyone who attended celebrations of my birthday. At the same time I would like to express my deep appreciation of the many friends and well-wishers who, remembering that it was my birthday, sent their warm greetings; among them many friends in the People’s Republic of China.

I am also aware that my fellow countrymen and women in Tibet would have remembered me on this day, although they would have been unable to participate in celebrations due of circumstances beyond their control. I would like to thank all of them too, while expressing my own admiration of their indomitable Tibetan spirit, their courage and determination.

And finally the Dalai Lama on affection:

Affection and a calm mind are important to us. A calm mind is good for our physical health, but it also enables us to use our intelligence properly and to see things more realistically. Affection too is important because it counters anger, hatred and suspicion that can prevent our minds from functioning clearly.
