The Dalai Lama on the "Today" Show

The Dalai Lama was on the "Today" show this morning. I'm not sure Ann Curry really GOT him, by the way. He was trying to say something positive about humanity, while she kept trying to say negative things about the world! (That was a bit funny, I have to admit.)

Read the above-linked article. One of the things he said was: "The news, the media highlight these negative things. Positive things take for granted; not news."

I guess he told her!

Dalai Lama

I was reminded that back in 2001 (on May 15), Marilyn and I got to see the Dalai Lama in person when he appeared here in Portland, Oregon (he was 75 then). That's almost nine years ago to the day!

I love it that he truly IS serene -- a calm and happy individual. His wisdom is really an inspiration.
