Meditation Quotes: Dalai Lama Video

The Dalai Lama Meditation Technique


“What surprises me most about humanity is man.
He sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future
that he does not enjoy the present.

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die,
and then dies never having really lived.”

– Dalai Lama

religion is something we can do without

The Dalai Lama has been a living beacon of peace and compassion and the benefits of meditation for many decades.

    Beautiful Images — the words unfortunately so very true! I’m trying to extract myself from this very web now.

      And thank YOU for the kind words Emma

      Did you download the free guided meditation yet?

      It’s for loving kindness, and for spreading the love you mention to all the outside world,
      AND to deeper and deeper inside you…. loving yourself more deeply than you thought possible.

    that’s lovely. thank you. but is it really by the Dalai Lama? it doesn’t quite sound like him. usually he has some message that he adds, and usually he repeats himself several times, judging by the posters I have of his sayings. did you check into that? there are a lot of things going around on the net saying they are from the Dalai Lama but are not really from him! it’s nice to be very sure about these things. regardless, it’s a beautiful saying and a very peaceful and calm video, so thank you for sharing it! peace and blessings, Rachel.

      I got it off an official website. I’ll try to look up the details for you.

      My Tibetan friends here in Calgary tell me that the Dalai Lama
      is much stronger, forceful, and fierce when he speaks in Tibetan…
      … so it could be true.

      But you’re right, he mostly speaks much more encouragingly, and with less “edge” …..
