The Dalai Lama’s Philosophy


There is no need for temples,

No need for complicated philosophy

My brain and my heart are my temples,

My philosophy is Kindness.

The Dalai Lama

I was lucky enough to hear the Dalai Lama speak in Seattle when he was here for the Seeds of Compassion talks! When I was in India co-leading and teaching yoga for the Spiritual India Tour/Yoga Retreat in the summer of  2010, we got ever so close to having a private audience with him.  However, it was his birthday and reporters were hounding him for personal interviews and they won out!   We dreamily stood before his residence filled with reporter-envy.  I am ever so moved by the Dalai Lama.  I still get chills when he says, “I am a simple monk! or “Love is my religion.”  So simple and yet his messages are so powerful.
