try spending a night in a room with a mosquito…

…Dalai Lama talked about his main aims – to promote global responsibility, human value and religious tolerance. He said that people who practice compassion and altruism seem to be happier than those that don’t, however much material wealth they have.

And afterwards I was thinking, what is it that we love so much about the Dalai Lama? And I thought that maybe in this age of celebrity, where you can be famous for playing football or being rich or doing drugs, the Dalai Lama is famous for being a good man. And smiling a lot.

And just for being like that, he has touched the lives of millions of people round the world. As he said, “If you think small things don’t make a difference, try spending a night in a room with a mosquito”.
