27april20093Dharamshala: TibetPost-27-April-2009-Tibetan spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama wore a California Golden Bears visor as he addressed at the University of California at Berkley, and an apron when he served lunch at a soup kitchen in San Francisco Sunday.    The Nobel Laurent is globally respected for his commitment to peace and his tireless efforts to better the human condition, laughed and spoke lightheartedly as he addressed the scores of people who came to see him and listen to him speak.

Pancho, A blogger from Metta Center for Nonviolence education told The Tibet Post "my favorite quote was: 'Disarm your person and disarm the World' he also said 'the best way to insure future peace is for mothers to love their children.'"   In keeping with the theme of service and compassion that has guided His Holinesses the Dalai Lama's trip to the United States.

Pancho did not actually attend the next event at Berkley because, thinking others' benefit, he said "I gave my ticket away, so that another human being could be captivated by the love of His Holiness but I heard that he explicitly advocated for the abolition of nuclear weapons and, as usual, his humor, compassion and kindness enchanted the whole audience."

Sharja Khan an undergraduate student from Berkley who did attend the event spoke about the message His Holiness conveyed to the crowd, "He spoke about the idea of finding and developing compassion within the individual and how if this is done on a large scale, then the possibility of peace on a global level is actually quite achievable. He talked about how to live a more peaceful life and how to attain a greater sense of reality. His Holiness also declared the necessity for the disarmament of the world, the end of violence has a solution, and how it is the responsibility of our generation to ensure the welfare of the world in the future. When asked if he had any advice for graduating college students, he advised that in all aspects of life, one should always hope for the best, but also prepare for the worse. He additionally added that life is not easy and that one should not be self-deceived," she told The Tibet Post today.

On Sunday, 26 April, the Tibetan spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama served lunch to 100 people at a homeless shelter, He said "I'm really happy for the opportunity to visit, our lives depend on others. Me too, my life depends on others. You are still in human society, human community. Please feel happy and feel dignity."
His Holiness will travel to Boston on the 30th of the month and will give talks at Harvard, MIT, and Gillette Stadium.
