A Simple Buddhist monk

July 7, 2008

His Holiness often says, "I am just a simple Buddhist monk - no more,
nor less."

His Holiness follows the life of Buddhist monk. Living in a small
cottage in Dharamsala, he rises at 4 A.M. to meditate, pursues an
ongoing schedule of administrative meetings, private audiences and
religious teachings and ceremonies.

He concludes each day with further prayer before retiring. In
explaining his greatest sources of inspiration, he often cites a
favorite verse, found in the writings of the renowned eighth century
Buddhist saint Shantideva:

For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world.

For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world.
