Conversation With The Dalai Lama

A group of travelers met with the Dalai Lama, in India, for several days. Their meetings focused on dialoguing what they believed were the 5 most important questions to be considered as we move into the new millennium.

How do we address the widening gap between rich and poor?
How do we protect the earth?
How do we educate our children?
How do we help Tibet and other oppressed countries/peoples?
How do we bring spirituality - deep caring for each other - through all disciplines?

The Dalai Lama said all the questions fall under the last one. If we have true compassion, our children will be educated, we will care for the earth, and for those who "have not".

He asked the group: "Do you think loving on the planet is increasing or staying the same?"

His own response was, "My experience leads me to believe that love IS increasing."

He shared a practice with the group that will increase Loving and Compassion in the world, and asked everyone attending to go home and share it with as many people as possible.


The Practice:

1. Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each day remembering we all want the same thing, (to be happy and loved), and we are all connected.
2. Spend 5 minutes of each day cherishing yourself and others. Let go of judgments. Breathe in cherishing yourself, and breathe out cherishing others. If the faces of people you are having difficulty with appear, cherish them as well.
3. During the day extend that attitude to everyone you meet - we are all the same, and I cherish myself and you. Do it with the grocery store clerk, a client, your family, co-workers, everyone.
4. Stay in the practice, no matter what happens.
