Dalai Lama 82nd birthday Celebrations of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate who is the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people.

HH The Dalai Lama’s Message on his 82nd Birthday
Tashi Delek ! Thank you from the Dalai Lama
His Holiness the Dalai Lama in response to well wishers on the occasion of his Birthday.
“I would like to thank everyone who sent kind greetings on the occasion of my 82nd Birthday and who joined in celebrating the day in many parts of the world.
As you are probably already aware, my life is guided by three principal commitments – to contribute to bringing about a more compassionate world, to encourage inter-religious harmony, and to work to preserve Tibet’s Buddhist Culture, which is a culture of peace and non violence, while also drawing attention to the need to protect the natural environment of Tibet. Since the Tibetan Plateau is the source of Asia’s major rivers, more than one billion people depend on the water they provide.
Tibet’s Buddhist culture is derived from the traditions of India’s Historic Nalanda University, which encouraged dependence on reason and logic over reliance on mere scriptural authority. It adopted an empirical approach, like science, which included a thorough knowledge of the workings of the mind and emotions that remains extremely relevant today.
These are commitments by which I abide myself, but, I often ask brothers and sisters who show me affection and respect to consider joining me in upholding them.
In short, May I request you please to help others whenever you can and it for some reason you can’t do that, at least to refrain from doing anyone any harm.
With my prayers and good wishes.
The Dalai Lama.”

Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, has touched and inspired far more than just the hearts and minds of the Tibetan people, for whom he is a beloved spiritual and temporal leader. Going to celebrate his 82nd birthday, his wisdom, compassion, peacemaking, interfaith endeavors, scientific curiosity, and delightful sense of humor make him a shining light for countless people from all walks of life and all religious traditions. He accepts invitations from around the world to give public talks for non-Buddhist audiences of thousands, to offer his students teachings on classic Buddhist texts and commentaries, and to engage in dialogue with religious and political leaders.
The 14th Dalai Lama was born in Taktser village, Amdo, Tibet and was selected as the tulku of the 13th Dalai Lama in 1937 and formally recognized as the 14th Dalai Lama at a public declaration near the town of Bumchen in 1939. His enthronement ceremony as the Dalai Lama was held in Lhasa on 22 February 1940, and he eventually assumed full temporal (political) duties on 17 November 1950, at the age of 15. Since then His holiness has been serving this world with love and peace and at the same time finding a middle way of survival for the people of Tibet in exile.
Dalai Lama 82nd birthday celebrations
With the Birthday celebration His Holiness Dalai Lama will also deliver teachings and will stay in Leh till 10th August.

On July 6, His Holiness the Dalai Lama 82nd birthday celebrations will be attended by over 10000 people in Leh. Thank you for helping Soulful Tours honor the Dalai Lama’s inspiring commitment to the promotion of human values, respect for all faith traditions and a peaceful solution for Tibet.

Few Quotes from HH Dalai Lama dedicated to all of us on his auspicious birthday
“As a human being I acknowledge that my well-being depends on others and caring for others’ well-being is a moral responsibility I take seriously. It’s unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved on the basis of prayer and good wishes alone; what we need is to take action. Therefore, my first commitment is to contribute to human happiness as best I can.”
“In today’s world, there is an emotional crisis; too much anger, too much fear, too much stress. That is wrong. In order to reduce anger and stress, you take drugs and alcohol, this is not the answer. The answer is the training of the mind. Gain full knowledge about the emotions. Whether you are a believer or a non-believer, knowledge of the mind, of emotion, is needed.”

Tashi Delek Your Dear, Sweet Holiness!
We have not actually met face to face, but I have felt your guidance from a far and through transmission and see you as the outer manifestation of the inner G’roo; you are truly my root G’roo. I am eternally grateful for the flowering abundance that has channeled into the world through me because of your Good Graces; this is a small part of the infinite fractal of perpetual wisdom and unconditional compassion that blossoms through your streams of Joyful Effort, Lovingkindness, and Oceanic Presence. Long life to you dear Grandfather of the Dharma, May the Infinite Love and Complete, Perfect Fullness that you emanate into this word be compounded infinitely and return to you on this, your 82nd birthday, and always. Om Mani Padme Hum
