“Same goal, same end”
These are the words of the Dalai Lama at his most recent visit to Dieu Ngu Temple in Westminster, Orange County, CA, where I was in attendance, on June 19, 2016. It was such a blessing to be in his presence (about 20 ft. away). I felt a positive aura radiating from him throughout my time there. As he urged audience members to be kind and compassionate in working toward more harmony in the world, he provided insight on the fact that every body is moving toward the same goal and same end. I love that so much. His humbleness as he addressed himself as a student despite being 81-year-old shows that we are all lifelong learners. I remember being in the audience as he gave a talk at USC in 2011 and to be even closer to his majestic presence again was indeed an honor.
