Yesterday we had the amazing privilege of meeting the Dalai Lama. Although we were planning to visit his residence her in Dharamsala, we certainly were not expecting to be able to participate in one of his audiences.
After registering the day beforehand, we lined up at 7am for an hour or so to enter, and then waited some more. At about 9am we were organized into country groups and told we would be photographed with H.H. The Dalai Lama. Awesome!
And then he came in, and was not only photographed with everyone but chatted and joked and shook hands etc. Such a humble, friendly soul.
When it was our turn I was overwhelmed that he came straight to Gypsy! He shook all of our hands and then held Gypsy's hand for the photo.
After the photo Gypsy put her hands together in namaste (without being asked to) and he saw and reached out and blessed her!
And to top it off, he told Roh he looked like a Sadhu and gave him a thumbs up.
It was so powerful meeting him. We were just so overwhelmed I actually cried.
After the photos he gave a talk on happiness and the importance of living simply.
Regardless of your beliefs, he is such a knowledgable and calm, peaceful person. His energy is amazing and just makes you smile.
And here we are, featured in the article from yesterday's audience!
