Close encounters of a Dalai Lama kind


Today is the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday and I join millions of others in wishing His Holiness continuing enlightenment and a long life. That photo was taken by me last year when I attended his Kalachakra teaching in the Tibetan Buddhist heartland of Ladakh on the border of India and Tibet. To mark this auspicious day I am linking to my photo essay about my visit to Ladakh in which I reflect on the paradox of the Dalai Lama.
