hier ligt het eiland van verlies
gesloten tussen water
nacht & dier
uit dit valies
van lied
waarin ik jou bewaar….

His holiness Dalai Lama - Tibet
His holiness Dalai Lama – Tibet

In this talk His Holiness turns to one of his favorite themes: the importance of compassion. Far from being a uniquely Buddhist concern, the Dalai Lama explains why caring for others can be the basis for a rich and rewarding life for all people. Whether one is a Buddhist or not, whether one is religious or not, a concern for the welfare of others is just good common sense. Compassion changes egotism into empathy, and transforms fear into freedom. It is the basis for both personal and communal peace. Series: Voices [9/2009] [Humanities] [Show ID: 17091]
