  2. One thing to remeber for modern people when The Dalai Lama talks about corruption he also talks about spiritual corruption like semen loss and pornography…Western ppl need to keep that in mind

  3. प्रज्ञापारमिताहृदय
    Thank you so much for sharing!
    It was very important to understand some concepts!
    May all beings be happy! Namastê!

  4. Dalai Lama is inspiring, our respect to him.

    Just from remembering some stuff- Brahmins of old answered this question of young soul, old soul…by using a word called Jeeva -a widely used word in India . It is Jeeva that separates from body, Jeeva could be young and old, reside in animals, man or as it is. Brahmanas meant Atma in a different context.

  5. we all are very lucky because we all are bieng able to watch his holiness the 14th dalai lama of tibet live or by television but think about those poor tibetans who living in tibet its like a dream come true..long live his holines the 14th dalai lama of tibet.bhoe gyalo

  6. A wonderful blessings for all of humanity and sentient beings…
    may all beings be imbued with happiness and with all its causes and be freed from suffering.. may all beings be happy

  7. I am hearing impaired. When are Dalai Lama’s lectures going to be closed captioned? There are deaf & hard of hearing individuals out in the world who are interested in Tibetan Buddhism and the Dalai Lama’s teachings and would like to have access. The translator of English is difficult to understand because of his accent and the volume is not loud enough to understand him.. I watch anyways even though I only catch 10% of what the Dalai Lama is saying I am practicing patience and tolerance.

  8. I love the messages of H.H. Dalai Lama. Thank you for providing his talks on YouTube. I wasn’t interested in Buddhism or reading his books until I started watching videos of him on YouTube. His talks have answers to many of my doubts.

  9. The beauty of Buddhism lies in the intellect involved in discovering the ultimate goal of the Buddha’s teaching. Buddha encouraged his followers to analyze and reason. It is my belief that through this ultimate reasoning and meditation enlightenment can be found.

  10. I wish he would drop the appellation “His Holiness”
    It’s a wee bit pretentious.
    How about just plain ol’ ‘Tenzin’? ‘T-Bone’ 🙂

  11. Thank you so much for this wonderfull video, added to 1 of my playlists and favorites.
    I hope many more people will learn from and enjoy this video and the excellent knowledge and wisdom of His Holiness The Dalai Lama and (Tibetan) buddhism.
