Your Feedback on Buddhism and Happiness
Beautiful quotes :) I especially like the one that says about mutual respect.
Yes, so many of us have been moved by His Holiness. A great man indeed.
The Dalai Lama combines great scholarship on not only Buddhism, but world religions with a great personal character. A great person indeed.

Yes, he does. I've studied with him and love him!
