Dalai Lama's guide to happiness

  • Published on: 09 October 2013
  • The beautiful song/soundtrack to this video is Himalaya by Tenzin Choegyal. His website is www.tenzinchoegyal.com

    This video looks at 'Buddhism and Happiness', as we ask are they a match made in heaven or something else? This eight minute epic reveals some incredible insights into human behaviour and values that impact our happiness, particularly in this materialistic Western life so many are living, or reaching for.

    The Dalai Lama's talk is from his 'the quest for happiness' public talk in Adelaide during his 'Beyond Religion' tour in Australia.

    While we would have ideally used footage of Tibetan monks in this video, we were unable to and instead used footage from our recent trip to Burma, where we acknowledge there may be subtle differences in how Buddhism is practiced. We do not mean to offend anyone by this and if you would like to fly us to Tibet to re-film this we'll happily take up the offer.

    From my heart I found Dalai Lama, I deeply accept him as true religious person. The Buddhism is something freedom of life.

    Buddah leads to people into the kingdom of darkness. There is a way that seems right but it only leads to eternal death and destruction. Jesus Christ died so that through Him we maybe able to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Jesus Christ is the only Way. There's no other and there will never be.Jesus Christ is real. I've seen Him. If you seek Him you will find Him. He is faithful to reveal Himself to all those who seek Him with all their heart. Jesus Christ looks nothing like the famous pictures. He is real. He is the God of the Universe. The creator of Heaven and Earth.Many people enter hell because they place their hopes in lies and false promises. Jesus Christ is the only one who is able to give eternal life. All other roads lead to hell. It's not God's will that anyone perish but all repent to receive eternal life. If you're willing, accept Jesus Christ and seek Him above everything else. Ask Him to forgive you for your sins, and follow after Him. Seek Him until He speaks to you. The Lord sounds like a Mighty Lion surrounded by many waterfalls. His voice brings fear and trembling.I don't want to see anyone disappointed for all eternity. I wish to see many of you transformed into the image of Christ and all for His Glory. It's your freewill to accept or reject Jesus Christ. He will speak to you at His time, if your patient and persistent in seeking Him above everything else. Once He speaks to you, obey Him until the end, and stay loyal to Him even unto death, your reward will be with Him in heaven.I love and care for all of you with all my heart. I don't want to see anyone perish for all eternity. I want to see you in the kingdom of heaven with Jesus Christ. He is the lover of your soul. He is the God who created you.

    I so much agree with what he says in this video. I sure do wish that the Leaders of the world would take the same attitude as The Dalai Lama.

    Since I've been aware I've come to realise that I've been brainwashed since birth by the idea of the nation, peer pressure, overvalued paper (money),age, color, enemy ,war , and all this ideas makes a one system and brainwashed me is the slave of that system.but soon I got the clarity, now am 25 and for me I now know what is the right thing to do and that is to do things where I find happiness that's all.

    http://www.lamatruth.com/ying/?type=detail&id=30In this article, a disciple of Kalu Rinpoche claims to have been coerced into sex with several monks and threatened with death by witchcraft if she spoke about it. Apparently in this Buddhist school, they consider it normal to kill an innocent by witchcraft. The person who burned down the Shangpa Karma Ling Buddhist center in France told investigators that he had been threatened with death and had been the victim of witchcraft by Denys Rinpoche, a strange coincidence. In 2016, I visited Shangpa Karma Ling, there was a doll with the limbs torn off in the temple, right next to the buddha statue.

    Those who reject Jesus tend to replace Him with the Dalai Lama. They may not be aware of the Tantric nature of Tibetan Buddhism, its links to A. Crowley and chaos magic, its links to Nazism through the Green Dragon Society, or its worship of "gods" and "goddesses" even more aggressive than the most ferocious Hindu entities. The vague pop psychology is a façade.

    Gratitude came to visit with her friend grace and she was holding the hands of joy and happiness. Wisdom arrived with freedom and bliss. In walked peace and love and they all agreed that gratitude was responsible. But gratitude bowed to grace, joy and happiness. Wisdom applauded! Peace fell in love with gratitude and the room was filled with bliss.
