dalai lama’s birthday

 

dalai lama, july 6

july 6, 1935

As a solid mass of rock
    Is not stirred by the wind,
So a sage is not moved
    By praise and blame.
As a deep lake
    Is clear and undisturbed,
So a sage becomes clear
    Upon hearing the Dharma.
Virtuous people always let go.
    They don’t prattle about pleasures and desires.
Touched by happiness and then by suffering,
    The sage shows no sign of being elated or depressed.

 – Dhammapada 81-83
