Programme Notes

In Chapter 11 of the book, The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World, The Dalai Lama quotes one of his favourite passages from Shantideva…

“As long as space remains, as long as sentient beings remain, until then, may I too remain, and dispel the miseries of the world.”

This is one of my favourite quotes of all time. No matter how badly life can become, every single one of us has an important place here. Many people can find such a sentiment frustrating… “I’m just one person, how can I make the world a better place?” First off, one’s presence is a gift and an asset. If one is evoking positive energy and a simple wish for things to get better, that is a huge benefit to our collective humanity. You don’t need to have millions of followers on social media or hold a position of power. Just feeling, praying, meditating, and wishing for good is good!! As many of us continue to remain in self-isolation due to the pandemic, this sentiment and practice is more important than ever.
