The very fabric of Tibetan Buddhism was tested when His Holiness Dalai Lama fled into exile in 1959, followed by tens thousands of Tibetans. Everything we believed and knew was shaken to its core: love, compassion, forgiveness, and the laws of karma, all were on the brink of falling apart. His Holiness Dalai Lama never gave up his vow to guide us. As long as sentient beings remain, as long as suffering remains, may I too remain and dispel the misery of all sentient beings. He holds this attitude of total acceptance of the present moment, the practice of giving and receiving (tönglen), and the principle of training the mind in everyday life, all while never giving up truth and dignity. He reminds us that life gives us the opportunity to fully engage in the practice of Dharma.
