The Monks commemorated today, the date The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, by praying for his long life and continued health.Dalai Lama: I am very happy to be here with you today to receive the Nobel Prize for Peace. I feel honored, humbled and deeply moved that you should give this important prize to a simple monk from TIBET. I am no one special. But I believe the prize is a recognition of the true value of altruism, love, compassion and non-violence which I try to practice, in accordance with the teachings of the Buddha and the great sages of India and Tibet
I accept the prize with profound gratitude on behalf of the oppressed everywhere and for all those who struggle for Freedom and work for world peace. I accept it as a tribute to the man who founded the modern tradition of non-violent action for change Mahatma Gandhi whose life taught and inspired me. And, of course, I accept it on behalf of the six million Tibetan people, my brave countrymen and women inside Tibet, who have suffered and continue to suffer so much. They confront a calculated and systematic strategy aimed at the destruction of their national and cultural identities. The prize reaffirms our conviction that with truth, courage and determination as our weapons, Tibet will be liberated. ...... - Nobel Peace Prize Day ... See MoreSee Less

Geshe made a real interesting point about how you may make a connection with someone by doing something harmful towards them and that creates a connection that can later lead to enlightenment. It was more sophisticated than that, but was an interesting view
So grateful and happy to hear the spreading of Dharma Peace.

A beautiful scene.
