In celebration of the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday, journalist Ann Curry asked him, “What would you like to say to the social media world, especially to the young people?”

“Pay more attention to your own mind, your emotion…so that your life can be more peaceful, [more] happier…if you pay attention to your inner value, no matter what is the surrounding situation, you can keep peace of mind.”

“…constant fear and anger is actually eating our immune system…In order to achieve healthy body we also need healthy mind.”

-Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

How can you not be angry if you’re always being pushed to your limits? Or how can you be compassionate to a grumpy stranger or a backstabber friend?

I think mastering your emotion is one of the hardest thing to do but taking it from the Guru, it is possible.

This is definitely easier said than done but if compassion brings forth inner peace and strength and good relationship, KEEP CALM and SHAKE IT OFF.
