“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”
- Dalai Lama
Visited the popular Dalai Lama monastery and this experience hold a special place in my heart. Situated in the heart of Himalayas, on top of it the weather here was beautiful (which actually stays lovely through the year) and the spiritual aura in the air just made the experience so magnificent. Place is filled with lot of Buddhist monks.. old, teenage, young monks.. wearing maroon robes and a soothing smile on their faces. I could suddenly feel a gush of happiness, calmness .. well I can not really explain that feeling but it surely explained what made these people leave the world behind and in the quest of what ! The answer was Peace. Randomly roaming and talking to these wonderful monks made me realise that there are millions of reasons to stay happy .. I fact the biggest of all is our existence in this universe. We should be thankful to each and every day we wake up for. All in all, I had a wonderful experience visiting the monastery and the lessons I learnt shall never be forgotten.
