His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is probably one of the few religious leaders today that are working ceaselessly for world peace, and the improvement of the society. I have been to his lecture once in person as a student, and have been impressed by his simplicity, awareness, humour and ease at which he relates to people. Dalai Lama, makes you feel comfortable in his presence, there is a beautiful humility, at the same time you become aware of his deep understanding about life. I am constantly inspired by him, and his teachings. I have had the good fortune of having him sign a photograph for me, which i cherish and take with me wherever i go… this is far from what he teaches, but just having this momento gives me a kind of comfort, a reminder that there are a lot of people who follow him, and thus there are a lot of people who in their little ways are working towards a more peaceful, sharing, enlightened society.
