the dalai lama ...

his smile brings smiles ...

his funny little laugh brings laughs ...

his kindness simply spills over invoking kindness ...

and today is his birthday ...

seventy-five years of life!

: : :

in celebration of this joyous occasion

se'lah of necessary room

is gathering the blogging community

on a bridge of love ...

encouraging random acts of kindness

anywhere and everywhere you roam ..

: : :

my neighbour and i delivered a community gift

to a longtime resident who recently moved 'off the farm' and 'to town' ...

we were so delighted to bring such joy to this lovely man ...

and equally, saying hello to the many residents in his building

as we passed them in the halls ....

gosh, it felt so good ...

: : :

and just now, i have returned from boosting my son's car

as his alternator belt fell off ...

(sorry for the posting delay)

he seemed so grateful for my help ...

: : :

 i think the dalai lama would smile his smile at this ...

the best gift of all for his special day!

: : :

thanks so much to chris at an inch of time for bringing this to light for me today ...

thank you, dalai lama ...



my religion is simple. my religion is kindness.

dalai lama

This is beautiful, Aeleen and I do truly believe the Dalai Lama would indeed be most happy with this post on his birthday. There is always something uplifting, special and very beautiful about doing something for another human being with no reason other than because you want to. I hope the Dalai Lama felt all of our efforts on his birthday. Se'Lah's the best isn't she? Thanks also for your thanks.

I forgot to mention this in my last comment. This looks like a sunflower, one of my favorite flowers. It's a beautiful photo and perfect for your post.
