Richard Gere’s Explaination of How Precious the Dalai Lama is to the World

The Hollywood actor and an activist, Richard Gere in a previous explanation says that His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s presence is a very precious gift to the world. Gere in an article published on the Buddhist journal, Lions Roar writes that beings like His Holiness the Dalai Lama rarely come to this world and we should embrace the amazing gift!

“Beings such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama rarely come to our world. But they do most certainly come when we need them the most. How foolish it would be for us not to embrace this amazing gift and not do the work to free ourselves and all our brother- and sister-beings from this craziness. It’s up to us.” said the article by Richard Gere published in a past edition.

The Hollywood actor who as himself turned into a Buddhist and a strong follower of the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama talks about inspiration. He explains that His Holiness is the radiant sun of the universal embrace.

“His Holiness wakes us from our dreadful sleep. He is the radiant sun of the universal embrace. He is inclusion, service, and self-sacrifice. He is genuine love. He is interconnectedness. He reminds us who we really are. He makes us larger. He makes us care. He delights us with his wisdom, his joy, his laughter, and his optimism. He carries us. How impossible it is to be proud and pretentious around someone so utterly simple and kind.” added the article in contrary to the world present world where words such as grace, kindness, simplicity, etc. are ridiculed as politically correct!

The Hollywood star also wrote that gazing at the Dalai Lama’s face, hearing his words, receiving his blessings, we want to love more deeply, forgive more completely, and serve others more selflessly

    F.Y.I. I am a 70 yr old retired single woman.
    His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the greatest spiritual teacher the world is fortunate to be in this time for the entire human race. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has traveled the world for many years to share his message of peace. I live in Portland, Oregon USA and in May of 2013 His Holiness the Dalai Lama came to share an all day gift of his selfless Love. Part of which was contributing to a panel for an Environmental Summit being held in Portland. Being in the same space as His Holiness the Dalai Lama was one of the greatest days of my life. I will share the memory when ever the opportunity presents itself. See Facebook, Nonviolence & Peace. ~Namaste

    His Holiness Dalai Lama is messenger of God. Richard Gere has explained it precisely.

    H.H. is indeed the rarest of treasures to find on this earth. He has already been honoured with nearly ever earthly award we have to offer – Earth Prize, Nobel Prize, Human Rights Award, Congressional Medal of Honour, Templeton Prize, Honorary Doctorates and Honorary Citizenships. If there is anything left to give, then surely he is deserving. Thank you H.H. Dalai Lama for a life-time of service to humanity, and thank you to Richard Gere for your constant effort and sacrifice in support of His Holiness, although I am quite sure you have received it as the greatest of rewards, rather than as a sacrifice.
