Citizen of the world

“I’m a human being, a citizen of a world in which we are all dependent on each other, a world in which we need a greater sense of concern for the welfare of others. Wherever I go I like to meet members of the public so I can share these ideas with them.”

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Smile

“I am determined to help young people in any way I can, because they are the future of the world. And the first step in establishing good communications with other people is to smile. I don’t like formality. There’s no formality when we are born, nor when we die.”

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Art of Hope

Repost @aiww: 10 years ago in 2013, I asked the @dalailama a question, ‘Do you hope to return to your native land?’ He replied, ‘I am hopeful’.

Tonight, he will launch the CIRCA 20:23 program in Piccadilly Circus with a message of hope for the world. Join a community of artists and me in giving voice to these important words:

“We must continually consider the oneness of humanity, remembering that we all want to be happy. And indeed, everyone has a right to a happy life. Along the way, we may be faced with problems, but we must not lose hope. We must keep up our determination without being impatient to achieve quick results.”
