A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Saturday, December 07, 2013


 People highly regard  a person if he/she sticks to selfless life style and become a messenger of peace even in the midst of turmoil in  his/her personal life.

The 14th Dalai Lama is known for his signature smile all over the world for the last half a century. Driven by the teachings of Buddha, Dalai Lama silently endured all the sufferings in his personal life. Showing a bountiful of compassion on fellow beings, no doubt that he stands before us as Messiah of Peace and Compassion.  Generally the  man of his age - 78  confines to one place to count the last days. But, his punishing schedules wonder anybody as he is a globetrotter through out the year without any iota of tiredness.

It is true that when a person develops an exemplary conduct, certainly he/she develops an energy center which emanates positive vibrations. Dalai Lama when he smiles, his child-like innocence mesmerises the onlookers.

When I read his book " The Art of Happiness- A handbook for living " co-authored with Howard C. Cutler. I cherished to meet him in person or atleast take a glance of that giant personality. But the desire remained unfulfilled until 1st December, 2013 when a friend of mine invited me to attend his lecture programme on ' Success & Happiness' at Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. It was my first experience to see such live packed audience of above one thousand, many of them are corporate czars, executives, academicians, diplomats, students etc. It seemed that all the elite class of Delhi was there. The spacious auditorium with beautiful sitting arrangements added glory to the occasion.

During his talk on ' Success & Happiness, His Holiness lauded India which practised Ahimsa - Non-violence since thousands of years. The secular fabric of nation, he added, kept us united in the last 60 years of independence despite so many odds.

HH said that with compassion and motivation, every act becomes non-violence. He asked people to respect all religions. He equally stressed to respect non-believers. His central message is to promote basic human values in the society. He said that much of the problems are our own creation. He pointed out that the reason for insecurity is that you are less-loved. He asked everyone to train his/her mind at their own level. His focal point which inspired me a lot is : " my best friend is my own mind ''
