"We all, at one time or another, try to pursue happiness outside ourselves. His Holiness the Dalai Lama teaches us how to find happiness within ourselves."--Khyongla Rato Rinpoche.
"These teachings provide practical advice on how we can become better human beings. By developing patience, wisdom, and compassion, we can more effectively - more generously - help one another in making the world a better place."--Richard Gere.
Each year, His Holiness the Dalai Lama travels the world, offering teachings and public talks to individuals from many different faiths and backgrounds. In 2010, His Holiness traveled to New York City to teach A Commentary on Bodhicitta by Nagarjuna and A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life by Shantideva. In his talk, His Holiness discusses ways in which one can achieve the realization of selflessness and ultimately achieve inner peace, which generates a genuine sense of responsibility.

As a non-Buddhist, some of the religious text was over my head. However, I greatly enjoyed seeing His Holiness interact with the other monks and lay persons on the stage. Also, one could see his genuine devotion to his belief when he prayed and chanted. It was so refreshing to see him switch from solemn interpretation of some ancient Buddhist text to suddenly laughing and telling an amusing story that initially seems very tangential; then he ties it into the text. This seems a very wise way of making the ancient words relevant to our lives. Despite his devotion to his religion, his open-heartedness to all religions is admirable. The highlight for me was the Public Talk he gave on the last day...PHENOMENAL!! He covered a wide range of issues including the meaning of secularism, global concerns such as war and economic downturns, how to create a healthy marriage and of course, compassion. For a man so revered, he showed us that he is also very human. Yet, he seems to embody all the good qualities we humans have, and thus inspires us by his actions as much as his words.
