Teachings from the Dalai Lama

Namaste everyone, well me and my old mate God have done it again. One of the biggest experiences that Ive longed for was to meet the Dalai Lama. This is one of the big reasons I came to Mcleod Ganj at this time. I was hoping to meet his Holiness, well while on the bus from Amritsar I started talking to a wonderful Australian guy, he told me that the Dalai Lama was giving teachings to people from the 22ND of November to the 27Th of November.

So the next day after arriving a few friends and I asked around, most people said we couldn't go unless you were at a certain level of teachings in Buddhism. So we were pretty disappointed and had to accept that we probably wouldn't see his Holiness. So off I went to Bhagsu to see the waterfall and look around this magical place.

The next day I went looking for a place called the Children's Village, I was told I could do volunteer work there(another reason for coming to Mcleod Ganj). I found the village but it was getting late so my guidance told me it would be dark by the time I headed back from the village. So I turned around and started back down the trail. It was a great exercise for my guidance because there were quite a few times where I had to choose left or right, so as you all know just ask your higher self which way or what to do and you'll always get the right answer for your highest good no matter what situation.

On the way back I was playing around with my camera, when I spotted a woman and a man coming down the hill. So I waited for them and asked if they could take a picture of me and the mountains(this is so all of you will believe me that I was actually in India,lol). They took my photo and I took theirs. On the way down I chatted to the woman about different things, we got on to the subject about the Dalai Lama's teaching day's, she said that her and her father were going, I asked how they got away with it, she said they spoke to a Tibetan monk and he said 'it would be fine', 'His holiness loves people to come along and see what he's teaching'. Well I thanked her greatly and told her how the night before I said to my friends while at dinner that,' I'm trying to follow whole heartedly the belief that everyone I meet is an angel sent from god to come into my life and give me a message and to be fully aware of what the message is they have given me' and she certainly was an angel. She fully agreed, so off I went and registered, It was very dear about five rupee's, lol, that's about two cents.

The next day we all attended his Holinesses teachings, what are heart opening experience. There were people from all over the globe, from every different walk of life and yes we were all surrounded by Buddhist monks. I tuned into what else was going on in other dimensions, when his Holiness and all the monks started chanting there was a beautiful wave of deep blue and green healing energy washing allover us. What an experience, when the day ended the Dalai Lama walked past us all smiling and giggling as he seems to always be doing, what a wonderful being of light he truly is. Tomorrow I hope to shake hands with him that would just about top the whole trip.

Here's some photos of this wonderful place, I cant wait to get right in the Himalaya's.
