On July 6th, 2021, many of us, all around the world celebrated the 86th birthday of His Holiness The Dalai Lama, a magnificent exemplar of compassion in our times. This auspicious occasion and the manifold crises that face humanity call on us to reflect on how we can make compassion a more active part of our lives: in the way that we relate to our loved ones, our community, and the world. In Holiness’s words, we must come together as one human family embracing 7 billion brothers and sisters.
In this episode, Yangsi Rinpoche pays tribute to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by drawing from his life to share the key to remaining consistently compassionate, even in the face of people and situations that challenge us.
