Today, I am speechless. I had the golden opportunity of meeting someone who had this effect on me. His persona exuded humility and compassion. His speech made me introspect on life and look deeper into the various religions and their teachings, and how everybody is essentially equal and, Humanity is the best value anybody can possess. He gracefully accepted questions and in every answer imparted teachings that I will never forget. His Holiness The Dalai Lama, made my day and remembering his infectious laughter still makes me smile. I was honored and humbled, to be a part of this special occasion , and be influenced by this great man and his words.
The following quote aptly summarizes this euphoria.
“It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly that we are not the same afterwards, even unto our names.”
