His Holiness the Dalai Lama

The other day we had the priviledge of seeing His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  In the morning we got up early to see him pass by in his motorcade on the way to speak at a school.  Many people crowded the streets to catch a glimpse of him.  He smiled and waved as he passed by and he seemed to radiate positive energy.

Later we went to the campus, where His Holiness was speaking to school children.  To get there we had to do a bit of treking up the side of a mountain.  Some people had radios to listen to the speech from the outside, but unfortunately I was not near one.  After waiting for a short while, we heard a thunderous applause and he descended the stairs to his vehicle.  Once again, he seemed joyful to see the people who had come to see him.  He seemed to be filled with a great inner peace.  I felt honored to be in his presence.  I was so glad to have had this opportunity.
