The Dalai Lama is turnned 80 years old on July 6, but he doesn’t want any gifts. Instead, your social media presence is the present.
In honor of his milestone birthday, His Holiness is asking people to share photos, videos and quotes depicting people simply treating one another kindly, along with the hashtag #withcompassion on social accounts.
“He has done so much to spread peace and compassion to the world – this is our opportunity to truly say thank you and to show him the incredible impact his work has on the global community,” Ven. Lama Tenzin Dhonden, founder and chair of Friends of the Dalai Lama nonprofit, said in an email statement.
I think we should all come together to honor the birthdate of such an admirable and blessed man who has bathed this world with love and light!
Happy birthday Your Holiness! Thank you for showing us a different way. Let us celebrate the Dalai Lama’s 80th Birthday Wish by living #WithCompassion
In love and light,
