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-
