The Dalai Lama on Animals


The creatures that inhabit this earth-be they human beings or animals-are here to contribute, each in its own particular way, to the beauty and prosperity of the world.

~His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

James's comment: Again a beautiful comment on the way to view animals as apart of ourselves. In this regard I see animals as if they are like our arm or our leg. They are apart of us in a very real way but they serve a different purpose being our arm. Whereas maybe a human friend or loved one is apart of us serving as a part of our heart or brain. Everything in existence is apart of ourselves and therefore serves different but very important roles in our lives.

I found this picture of HH to be very cute and fun. It's also nice to see the Dalai Lama not taking himself too seriously and having some fun with modern technology by leaning out a car window with a big, happy grin.

-Peace to all beings-

I loved the quote from Dalai Lama! The picture shows his nature very well I think. I had the privilege to meet him this summer, and all that have been said about his good humor is true. I posted a story about this yesterday actually: http://nerdineinspiration.blogspot.com/2005/10/staying-like-child.html

Three passions,warcraft leveling simple but wow lvl overwhelmingly strong,wow power level have governed wow power level my life: the longing wrath of the lich king power leveling for love, the search for knowledge,World of warcraft Power Leveling and unbearable pity WOTLK Power Leveling for the suffering wlk power leveling of mankind. These passions,wlk power leveling like great winds,age of conan gold have blown me hither and thither,cheap aoc gold in a wayward course,aoc power leveling over a great ocean ffxi gil of anguish, reaching final fantasy xi gil to the very verge of despair. I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy - ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed FFXI Gil all the rest of life for final fantasy gil a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, wow gold because it relieves loneliness--that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness dog clothes looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss.
