My Dream

It would be a great honor to speak with the Great Dalai Lama. I am from a multi -cultural/religious background but at the age of 12, decided to follow in the footsteps of Buddhism. In a family of muslims,hindus & christians, I sought to belong and I came across the teaching of the Buddha by watching speech given by the Dalai Lama on tv. It changed my life, I started following the path. I live my help to help others and in return, after many years of overcoming obstacles I’m faced with, I can honestly say my faith in the teachings has given me strength to persevere. I would greatly appreciate it to have a conversation with him, just to say “Thank you.” I am so appreciative of everything I have gained in life; my family, my friends, my society but the none of this would not have been possible if I had not found stability and determination I derived from my religion. I missed when the Dalai Lama was in Toronto last year as I had to work and I don’t know when he’ll get a chance to return but it would mean everything to me to have a conversation with him. I pursue knowledge and his presence is awe-inspiring with his somber nature of handling the most chaotic obstacles around him. Thanks
