A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Today on July 6th, millions around the world are celebrating the 79th birthday of one of the most recognizable icons of peace, hope and compassion: His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
As a young leader in exile, His Holiness the Dalai Lama began a tireless journey to lead his people in their freedom struggle. In the past fifty years he has created a thriving exile community, built international support for Tibet, and inspired an entire generation of people of conscience that a better world is possible.
Wishing His Holiness the Dalai Lama a very happy birthday, long life and perfect health.
"You make the path that combines emptiness and compassion grow clearer and clearer,
Lord of the teachings and beings in the Snowy Land of Tibet,
To you, the Lotus Holder Tenzin Gyatso,
We pray: may all your wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!"
In accordance with the prayers made by Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, these are the blessed words of His Holiness himself.
