Happy Birthday to HH Dalai Lama

His Holiness the Dalai Lama turns 80 on July 6th and his upcoming birthday was recently celebrated at the Glastonbury 2015 festival. He was brought out as a "surprise guest" during Patti Smith's set. They had a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday and the Dalai Lama said a few words. He was clearly touched. I love his expression (2:27) when he blows out the candles. A very good use of 8 minutes of your day.



Just so you know. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tensin Gyatso, will be visiting New York on October 18, 19, and 20 and will offer teachings on the Heart Sutra, The Sutra of Truly Remembering the Sublime Three Jewels, and The Wisdom Chapter of the Guide to a Bodhisattva Way of Life. Go here for tickets.  [NOTE: The Dalai Lama's visit is sponsored by The Gere Foundation and The Tibet Center].
