The 14th Dalai Lama recently completed a Compassion Without Borders tour across San Diego, USA. The Dalai Lama used this opportunity to share his views on ethics, forgiveness and the role of extending and sharing compassion from within in order to achieve tolerance in today’s society.
Eamen Hameed, our fellow FinerMinds’ reader, was one of the privileged few who was selected to attend the event and had a chance to ask the Nobel Peace Prize-winner one of the most important questions of all:
How do we go beyond our very first border – the border of our personal being?
The Dalai Lama’s answer was, as Eamen put it – “delightfully simple as is his being and behavior”! Breaking it down to a three-step approach the answer was:
- to love yourself;
- to respect your (personal and extended) family; and
- to take advantage of science to educate you.
In his interesting (and friendly!) account of his time with the Dalai Lama, Eamen described the teachings that the renowned Buddhist highlighted during the tour, including the concept of “Good Thought, Good Word, Good Deed” and the harmonious dance between Spirituality and Science.
Eamen, together with his brother Amean, is the founder of HealingPAQ, a non-profit organization dedicated to the art and science of energy healing and connecting to the divine. Believing that life too has a sense of humor in getting our attention, Eamen encourages us to share our joy of living and enjoy the experience towards success instead of the end result only.
We are delighted to introduce Eamen to you and share his full article entitled “Dalai Lama’s Compassion without Borders – San Diego, CA” here (click the title of the article to link to the full article).
