Developing Peace and Harmony
I just returned from my two day trip to Memphis Tennessee. The purpose of my trip was to attend a lecture by the Holiness himself. He was receiving the 2009 International Freedom Award from the National Civil Rights Museum. During his stay, the Dalai Lama gave a public speech on "Developing Peace and Harmony." I still have not fully digested everything he had to say but wow! I wish more people will be able to hear his message. It wasn’t about religion or a special way of life. It was about true mutual respect for every human regardless of race, gender, creed and nationality. I think once I fully digest this experience it will become a life changing one.
