A Gift to Myself: A Spiritual Day with the Dalai Lama

The line was around the corner and down the road behind the Wang Theater when we arrived, apparently due to security checks and protesters who had a mantra all of their own…”False Dalai Lama – Stop Lying.”

Check out this short video and experience what happened outside the Wang Theatre.

False Dalai Lama

As we waited in line to meet his Holiness, protesters handed us leaflets stating, “Dalai Lama, the worst dictator in this modern day.” They went on to say the Dalai Lama has falsely banned the worship of the enlighten deity called Dorje Shugden; he has forcefully removed all Tibetan Shugden practitioners from their own Tibetan communities; and he is continually performing various actions to expel all other Shugden practitioners from Buddhist communities throughout the world.

This private event with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for his “Eight Verses of Mind Training,” along with a special transmission on Enlightenment Mind in Boston, was a 6 hour event with over 3500 attendees. The energy shift was truly amazing when his Holiness entered the stage. I experienced this amazing feeling of love and compassion in his presence.

His Holiness explained the ‘Eight Verses for Training the Mind,’ (http://www.dalailama.com/teachings/training-the-mind) which is the basic formula of the Buddhist path to enlightenment laid out as the Four Noble Truths. That description of suffering and its origin, cessation, and the path to it, are two sets of causes and effects – karma. Suffering arises as a result of causes and conditions. Cessation, which refers not to ordinary pleasure, but to lasting happiness, also comes about due to causes and conditions. The instructions contained in the Four Noble Truths are common to all schools of Buddhism.

The Heart Sutra says, ‘form is empty, emptiness is form,’ does that mean form or matter does not exist? His Holiness said, “No, because form is something we experience; it exists by way of dependent origination. When we investigate form, we don’t find it, because it doesn’t exist the way it appears; it’s empty of true existence. It exists only by way of dependent designation. Phenomena exist through dependent origination, form is empty.”

The Dalai Lama said that a more effective understanding could be achieved by substituting ourselves for phenomena, thinking, ‘I am empty, emptiness is me’. He said, “Emptiness and phenomena are not different things, they are aspects of the same reality,” and that there is, “a resemblance to the understanding of quantum physics.” I was thrilled to hear him say this because we now have scientific proof – science has caught up with spirituality.

We were then led by His Holiness in a ceremony to generate the awakening mind. When he mentioned the importance of putting this into practice in your day-to-day life over the coming months, years, decades and eons, in life after life, we starting applauding and laughing with him and his big belly laugh. He’s a funny guy. Meanwhile outside, crowds of Tibetans cheered His Holiness’ presence and prayed for his long life.

The Boston Police did a great job of keeping things in check. When I came out of the theatre one of the cops said to me. “Are you enlightened?” Another funny guy!

Apparently the protestors had been in full form for the whole day. Six hours…chanting their mantra and banging their drums.

I’m not a religious person myself…I’m a spiritualist who accepts all religions. I am truly grateful to have experienced this amazing event.

As I headed home via the T, I thought to myself, it doesn’t seem to matter what the religion, there is always disagreements, radicals, protestors and non-believers. If we can’t coexist within our own religious beliefs, will we ever have peace on earth?

An amazing day of enlightenment and spiritual healing.

Good morning, lovely you!

As we feel the emotional demands stacking up, it's more important than ever to set aside time to meditate and center oneself.
Sort through your priorities. Decide what you want to pursue, or how you want to handle something that's been bothering you.

If the family house is too busy and hectic, try escaping to a place outside for a bit. Go for a walk, lie down in a dark room, whatever you need to do to let your brain quiet down for a bit and really reflect

It's the first day of December!
Christmas music is absolutely everywhere, and folks are calling it "the season of giving."

We don't always have to give material gifts - spending quality time with someone, reaching out, offering support - those are also ways to give to your family and friends. They're important parts of a relationship!

You can't always have a good day.
The world won't always line up to put you at an advantage.
But you can always face a bad day with a good attitude, and in good faith.

When you are overwhelmed, overstimulated, rushing around panicking and feeling guilty for not being productive enough or good enough.... those are the times when the most PRODUCTIVE thing you can do is take a break to relax.

It's very rare that we can do our best work when panicking, and rushed work means more mistakes and more 'doing things ever' which will end up costing you more time than if you had just carefully and slowly done the work the first time.

When you feel frazzled, overwhelmed - take a short break to take some centering breaths.
Take a break to relax your body.
Take a break to let the buzzing storm in your brain cool off to let you THINK.
Pet a cat, or step outside to listen to the wind.

I'll say it again:
Sometimes, the most productive thing you can do is to REST.
