Buddhist spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama is reported to have agreed to offer classes via internet as a part of the evening classes of a charity organization in United Kingdoms. According to a report on Tuesday, the Tibetan spiritual leader will take part in offering classes as a part of the charity’s initiative to promote happiness skills in every English town.
“Trying out” is one of the skills that the new Action for Happiness charity teaches. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has agreed to be the patron of an ambitious program that includes local Action for Happiness evening classes in towns all across the U.K. The Tibetan Buddhist leader is reaching out to offer classes everywhere the English internet reaches.” says the blog post by Penney Kome in Rabble.ca.
Action for Happiness says that one of the problems is that Western society has been urged to seek happiness in wrong places as a marketplace. The charity provides evening classes teaching people on how to switch their moods and release irritants, rather than drowning themselves in the sorrows through self- indulgence.
“Action for Happiness encourages each of us to live more compassionately and put the happiness of others at the centre of our lives. This is the path to lasting peace and happiness. I am very happy to have been invited to be the patron of this movement and I encourage everyone, whatever their background, to join us and make a personal commitment to helping create a happier world” His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote to the Action for Happiness charity earlier.
Earlier last month, the office of His Holiness the Dalai lama launched and iPhone app called the Dalai Lama app which will allow his followers to stay up to date with Buddhist leader and his teachings. It will offer official news, videos, and photos from His Holiness’s Office, including live video streams too when they are available.
According to the Action for Happiness’s official website, it is a small charitable initiative working hard to inspire practical action for a happier and more caring society.
