- Day of Compassion / His Holiness Dalai Lama’s birthday -
Today is His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 77th birthday.
It’s an opportunity for us to come together and celebrate compassion in our lives. I started to become interested in Buddhism after climbing Everest. Its such a peaceful philosophy. This picture is me with the Lama in Tengbouche Monastery in Nepal, giving me a unique blessing before climbing to the roof of the planet in 2007.
Compassion is what brings us together in unity and harmony, overcoming all forms of discrimination. It brings us joy, connection and meaning.
What better way to celebrate compassion than to celebrate it on his birthday!
I’m sure that I speak on the behalf of all my friends at the pole2pole blogg when I wish his Holiness a happy birthday with a lot of compassion…
