Having His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzen Gyatso, address the delegates of the 2013 Global Spa & Wellness Summit is a rare and valuable privilege. His Holiness has spoken and written about health and wellness for many years, both from the scientific side, as well as the experiential side, and we are excited that his address at the Summit will explore the question: “What is wellness?” After his remarks, there will be a Q&A moderated by Dr. Kenneth Pelletier, who has previously shared a stage with His Holiness. Dr. Pelletier has asked that we gather questions from our readers, and you are all invited to submit a question you would like His Holiness to answer directly.
Please let us know what you would MOST like to ask, and your question may be among those presented on day two of the Summit, Sunday, October 6. Please email us your question, and if you wish, include your name, title and company.
His Holiness the Dalia Lama, a Nobel Peace Prize winner who was recently found to be the most popular world leader in the U.S. and six European nations, inspires people every day with his compassion and wisdom. Here are just a few of His Holiness’ thoughts that we hope will inspire you this weekend…and in the months ahead.
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
“Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.”
“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional…we have bigger houses, but smaller families. More conveniences but less time. We have knowledge, but less judgement; more experts, but more problems; more medicines but less health.”
”If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”
“Love is the absence of judgment.”
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”
“Silence is sometimes the best answer.”
“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.”
“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
