"I consider non-violence to be compassion in action. It doesn’t mean weakness, cowering in fear, or simply doing nothing. It is to act without violence, motivated by compassion, recognising the rights of others.'"   
His Holiness The Dalai Lama.   Geshe Lobsang will give an introduction and read in English His Holiness’ acceptance speech upon receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

dü sum sangye guru rinpoche
Embodiment of buddhas of past, present and future, Guru Rinpoche;

new book 2Challenged by disease, we panic. Provoked by enemies, we get angry. Enticed by the allure of what we think we lack, we become lost in distraction and desire. Rather than simply reacting to circumstances, being pushed and pulled by whatever happens in the outer world, we need deep resilience to live a more fulfilling life. This is grounded not just in physical, mental, or emotional strength, but also in inner spiritual strength. In this guide Rinpoche helps us to discover our inner resources and offers advice on practical methods of developing them. His direct and unpretentious words make profound ideas accessible to everyone.

This comes with my sincere prayers that you and your family are staying safe and healthy.  These past 18 months have been difficult and have affected all of us living on this fragile planet.  In these 18 months, some people have lost their lives or have had a family member pass. Every one of us has been impacted to one degree or another. I hope we can see ourselves rounding the corner and finding ourselves headed forward on the road of recovery; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.
