Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

via Barry Kerzin
This is an old rare photo of HHDL answering deep complicated philosophical questions during his examination for the Geshe Lharam degree in Lhasa, 1959. He says, "there is a saying in Tibetan that “at the door of the miserable rich man sleeps the contented beggar.” The point of this saying is not that poverty is a virtue, but that happiness does not come from wealth, but from setting limits to one’s desires, and living within those limits with satisfaction."
