Daily Inspiration: 5 Steps to Happiness

The Dalai Lama, was born as Lhamo Thondup, in Taktser, Tibet on July 6, 1935. He is currently the 14th Dalai Lama, in straight succession, of people to hold that title. He is the  head of the order of Gelugpa Buddhism and Tibetan political leader.

If you’ve ever seen photos or television interviews of the Dalai Lama, most likely, he is smiling. Listening to him talk, hearing his infectious laugh and seeing his beautiful smile always inspires me, makes me happy and brings a smile to my own face.

So, what is the secret to happiness, according to His Holiness, the Dalai Lama? I have found a video showcasing 5 clips with him, speaking on finding inner peace and happiness.

And if you’re wondering why he’s always smiling…I actually found a short PDF book by that title: “Why is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?” To see the book, select the link below:

About Tamara Hoerner (1141 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
