Today, July 6 2016, is the 81st Birthday of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso (born in Tibet on July 6, 1935).
His Holiness is one of the most widely beloved and instantly recognized persons alive on the Earth today. Billions of persons around the world consider him a great friend of the entire planetary family.
It is my great joy and humble pride to have personally received various series of initiations (empowerments) and accompanying teachings from His Holiness on several occasions since the early 1970s, and together with my now-late wife on various occasions beginning from the 1980s.
Happy Birthday, Beloved Teacher, and friend to all !
(Birthday greetings notice below received today from friends in California)
Happy 81st Birthday, Your Happiness!
“You see time does not matter. Eons and eons…limitless eons…don’t matter
so long as in your life…there is some fulfillment…some purpose.
And the purpose means helping others, supporting, serving others.”
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, February 1996
