“All People and things are interdependent. The world has become so small that no nation can solve its problems alone, in isolation from others. That is why I believe we must all cultivate a sense of responsibility based on love and compassion for each other.” Dalai Lama

As war, violence, crime and disasters flood across worldwide, now more than ever before we need to reflect upon the precious little things that bring us joy and happiness every day.  From the mysteries of the endless horizon spanning far beyond the deepest of the oceans to the miracle of a color filled rainbow; from the warm affection of a marble eyed cat to the soft and sweet memories of childhood; with so much beauty around us, there is no reason but to smile away one’s worries and preserve the beauty that lies both within us and outside.

pf01His Holiness Dalai Lama, the spiritual peace messenger turns 74 today. In honor of his life long journey towards promoting inner and outer world peace, I will dedicate my next few articles to our beautiful world.

With compassion we can progress our modern world towards a peaceful universal society, where no boundary; religion, culture, class or gender separates one from being sensitive to the other.

Floating on these thoughts; let me spread my wings and showcase some of my beautiful snapshots from across the world. Through these photos, I hope to inspire peace and serenity amongst all. Let us bring to surface our inner Dalai Lama; let peace, love and beauty raise every human spirit above all violence and pain.
