Kids Stories: Karma Urgyen
To tell you the highlight of my time here in Portugal, I recently went to the 3-day teaching by H.H. the Dalai Lama. H.H also gave a general talk to the public on the 4th day.
It was so amazing to see H.H so close for 4 days in a row! The atmosphere was so powerful when H.H. entered the hall. More than 1800 of us stood up hastily with our hands joined together in full respect. He affected all of us with his powerful nature of peace, honesty and humour.
I hadn’t fully realised my respect towards H.H. and Buddhism. I had thought my respect was at the topmost level, but after seeing HH, I respect His Holiness the Dalai Lama even more, and as a follower of Buddhism I now I find myself at a higher level higher of devotion.
