WPC: Admiration

I admire many people. People who struggle hard to get a decent life, people who save other people’s lives, people who have accomplished great things… But there is one man I admire perhaps the most of all. The Dalai Lama.

We all know his story, how he was taken from his parents at an early age – being the chosen one. How he had to flee his country from the invading Chinese, and how he has managed to survive and be the leader and role model for so many people in the world. His gentle wisdom, his smiling eyes, his message of peace and nonviolence is recognized worldwide.

The Dalai Lama has my deepest admiration .

In the header is a picture from Malmoe, when he visited in 2011. I had listened to him once before in Lund, but this time I also happened to be right at the entrance just when he left the building.

After the interesting and joyful interview, he walked out to the waiting car…

  3. You’re so lucky! I would love to meet him – or even see him. He has the most beautiful calmness, kindness and happiness in his face. Lovely post.

  4. Wow, Leya. Wow. You saw The Dalai Lama in real person and even listened to his speech before. It must have been a very inspiring interview. The last two shots are stunning. Surrounded by a throng of people, The Dalai Lama looks calm as ever. And I think you were calm and collected too when you took these lucky shots. Well timed, and in the last one it looks like he is looking right at you 🙂
