Dalai Lama & D.C., Not every day you get marriage advice from the Dalai Lama. But today, in the shadow of U.S. Capitol thousands of area residents were treated DC-free advice from the spiritual master himself.
The Dalai Lama said that many women spend so much money on makeup, but that’s not what really matters, or leading a happy and successful marriage.
“Make your face beautiful is good, but meanwhile we must pay more attention to their inner beauty. With the inner beauty is a good partner,” said the Dalai Lama. “Ignoring much about inner beauty, outer beauty only, is a kind of partner, some partners, but can not last long.”
Cosmetics and marriage advice aside, the purpose of discussing the Dalai Lama, today held out of the west facade of the U.S. Capitol building was talking about how to achieve world peace.
The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said that organizations like the UN to do a good job of transformation in the world, but all change really has to start with a single individual.
“Try to create a calm mind, peace of mind, then it creates within our own families, within our own community. That is the way to change our society.”
That message was that reverberated throughout those in the audience that together, if everyone tries to make small steps to change their neighborhoods and the city can be better.
“There’s always such a good feeling when a crowd gathers for a purpose,” said Maryanne Engel Ellicott City, adding that the thoughts of calm and peace with their past during the day.
DC resident Joseph Howard said that everyone should think about the message of the Dalai Lama has to say about non-violence as the city has high crime rates.
“It is important, obviously, wants to reduce violence in the city,” said Howard.
Gina Lee, a volunteer who specializes in stress management and communication of a violent prison, says he will carry that message to the inmates he works with Annapolis.
“I felt very inspired to come and see the teacher and I will take this to the internal and perhaps share this with them,” said Lee.
The Dalai Lama is currently in an eleven-day stay in Washington and today’s event marks one of the biggest events of its audience since resigned from his political role for his spirit.
He will hold a “Kalachakra” every day at the Verizon Center, one of the most important religious teachings for Buddhists. People of all faiths are welcome at this event with ticket.
Jim Sutorus came all the way from Raleigh, North Carolina to attend today’s event and Kalachakra one later in the week. He said more than words, the presence of the Dalai Lama is the most special.
“Seeing what I think is important,” said Sutorus, “There is an aura around him that makes you feel special.”
