“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
~ Dalai Lama XIV

11 year old Lachlan was credentialed as a member of the press to cover the visit of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama to the University of Minnesota on May 7 & 8th. This video is an unedited clip of the Dalai Lama’s answers to Lachlan’s questions.

The Dalai Lama’s visit was co-sponsored by the Tibetan American Foundation of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing.

Tara Lemieux is a mindful wanderer, and faithful stargazer. Although she often appears to be listening with great care, rest assured she is most certainly‘forever lost in thought. She is an ardent explorer and lover of finding things previously undiscovered or at the very least mostly not-uncovered. Just like a butterfly, she is ready to spread her newly painted wings and fly to wherever the universe may carry her. But most, and best of all - Tara is a writer, always in search of a faithful ear. If after all of this, you still wish to seek Tara out, you can find her rambling on at www.taralemieux.com blogging happily at Mindful Musings, or blissfully connecting on her personal Facebook Page. Whichever path you may choose, Tara will greet you warmly and always with much happiness.

    Nice post, I always love to hear the man speak, especially to children. He is honest, and has a humor which I think kids (and a few adults) understand, as well as much wisdom to share.
