DHARAMSHALA, August 22: The Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama yesterday concluded his teachings on A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life and Avalokiteshvara empowerment at Shiwatsel teaching ground, wrapping up his month long Ladakh visit.

“The more we practice altruism and help others, the more we will benefit ourselves. The resultant peace of mind helps us live longer, able to serve humanity longer,” said the Tibetan leader while urging his devotees to pray with good motivation.

The 81-year old spiritual leader said, “We are accustomed to being ignorant about reality and adopt a self-cherishing attitude. Now, due to encountering Buddha’s teaching, we are awakening from the slumber of ignorance. Therefore, we should try to generate the awakening mind of bodhichitta.”

He added that in the immediate short term it would bring peace of mind and better health, while in the longer term it would ensure a rebirth into higher realms.

The Dalai Lama was also offered a long-life prayer (tenshug) on August 20 led by the Gaden Tripa Rizong Rinpoche and members of Ladakh Buddhist Association.

His Holiness will be returning to Dharamshala, where he is scheduled to continue his teaching from Chapter 2 of Nagarjuna's The Precious Garland of the Middle Way at the request of a group from Asia at the Main Temple of Tsuglakhang from August 29 to September 1.
