Your Cup o' -- The Dalai Lama on Danger
January 20, 2007
Here is another wonderful teaching of the Dalai Lama, this time on Danger :
There was a not very scholarly monk from my monastery who came out of Tibet to India around 1980. Since we knew each other, we were casually chatting one day. He told me that while he was in a Chinese Communist galag for almost eighteen years, he faced danger on a few occasions. I thought he was referring to a threat to his own life. But when I asked, "What danger?" he answered, "Losing compassion toward the Chinese." He considered this to be the danger!
